Irondale, AL (EWTN) – The Alabama State Legislature unanimously passed a state resolution Tuesday, April 5 honoring “renowned Roman Catholic Evangelist Mother Mary Angelica…in highest tribute to her indelible legacy…” After the resolution was read, there was a rare moment of silence in the Chamber in honor of Mother’s extraordinary life.
The Resolution notes that the death of 92-year-old Mother Angelica on Easter Sunday, Mary 27, 2016, has left “a void in the lives of countless individuals worldwide, whose lives she positively impacted through her meritorious work and spiritual teachings.”
Additionally, the Resolution states that Mother “reached millions of lives for the Lord through the Eternal Word Television Network,” worldwide terrestrial and shortwave radio, the National Catholic Register, Catholic News Agency, and other prominent publishing endeavors.
Finally, Mother was lauded because she “profoundly impacted others through her compelling studio productions, spiritual talks, and writings,” for building the Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament, and more.
“EWTN is grateful to the Alabama State Legislature for recognizing the life work of our Foundress, Mother Mary Angelica,” said EWTN Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Michael P. Warsaw. “We are proud to carry on the legacy of a nun whose love of the Lord was an inspiration to all who knew her.”
