Mother Angelica was an inspiring, heroic, and holy woman!

Mother Mary Angelica of the Annunciation, the foundress of EWTN, passed away March 27, 2016 (also Easter Sunday). On this 7th anniversary of her death, let us remember her with some of her most inspiring and encouraging words.

1) “Unless you are willing to do the ridiculous, God will not do the miraculous.”

2) “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.”

3) “You must laugh your way to heaven, because tears won’t get you there.”

4) “You can’t go to Heaven hating somebody. Forgive now. Be compassionate now. Be patient now. Be grateful now. Love Jesus and Mary now. Accept God’s will now.”

5) “You have all eternity to experience the presence of God, but you have a very short time to do something for him.”

6) “Boldness should be the eleventh commandment!”

7) “I think one of the greatest things you could kick yourself all around heaven for, if you could do that, would be for not realizing He was always with you just as if no one else existed.”

8) “Try to laugh a lot, because life is funny and everybody today is too serious. The only tragedy in the world, my friend, is sin.”

9) “Holiness is not for wimps, and the cross isn’t negotiable, sweetheart — it’s a requirement.”

10) “If you’re not a thorn in somebody’s side, you aren’t doing Christianity right.”

11) “Everybody is searching for their identity. But the real you only emerges when you are united to God. You need His grace, and without it you are stumbling in darkness.”

12) “Everything starts with one person… I don’t care if you’re five or 105, God from all eternity chose you to be where you are, at this time in history, to change the world.”

13) “Only in eternity shall we see the beauty of the soul, and only then shall we realize what great things were accomplished by interior suffering.”

14) “Sometimes we ask God for things, and we seem to get the exact opposite. God sees the whole chapter. You just see the beginning.”

15) “I guess that is what dying must be like; to be finished and to be able to look back at the struggles of life, and know that God was your constant companion.”
