We thank God for the faithful and courageous witness of Mother Angelica. Her life and legacy is a sign of the mysterious work of God’s Grace. He chose and raised her up and empowered her by grace to be the needed risk-taker when the Church needed encouragement and an undeterred voice for truth; but He never took away her freedom to chose. And by grace she freely chose to dedicate her entire life to His service. May God bless her and have mercy on her. Our lives are better because we knew her.
