Mother Angelica's Spirituality

Picture source

I found the following in EWTN Media Missionaries Devotional Guide.  If you want to be saintly like Mother Angelica, following the example of her spiritual life is a good way to begin.

"Like St. Francis, her spirit also consists in:

- Adoration of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament.

- Devotion to the Cross of Christ.

-  Devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary.

-  Having complete faith and trust in God.

-  Being faithful to the Holy Father and the teachings of the Catholic Church.

-  A generous giving of self, even while enduring extreme suffering.

-  Courage in the face of the risks involved in media ventures.  Mother Angelica once said, faith to me is having one foot in the air, one on the ground and a queasy feeling in your stomach (Sr.  Mary Raphael, PCPA, My Life With Mother Angelica, p. 40).

-  With God, all things are possible.  IN one of her books, Mother Angelica writes that there are times when, unless, w are wiling to do what seems humanly ridiculous, God will not do the miraculous.  (Mother Angelica, Answers, Not Promises, p. 51).

-  A family spirit.  As Mother often said, 'We're Family!'"
