Mother Angelica, born into eternal life on Easter Sunday, March 27, 2016 at 5:00p.m.
While the world mourns and sends tributes for the passing of Mother Angelica, I would like pay my tribute, in a small way, with a few of my favourite quotes from Mother Angelica. I will remember her as an amazing and inspirational woman. Her words and teachings were always down-to-earth and in the Spirit, full of encouragement, and given in love. She was close to the Heart of Jesus, having a trusting, child-like relationship with her Lord ... and her desire to do God's will was contagious.
Faith is what gets you started. Hope is what keeps you going. Love is what brings you to the end.
Faith is one foot on the ground, one foot in the air, and a queasy feeling in the stomach.
Where most men work for degrees after their names, we work for one before our names: 'St.' It's a much more difficult degree to attain. It takes a lifetime, and you don't get your diploma until you're dead.
May Mother Angelica live on in our hearts. The best tribute we could give would be that her work continues on through the legacy she left behind.
Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord,
and let the perpetual light shine upon her.
May she rest in peace.
