“She didn’t know exactly where God was leading her that summer of 1944. But she went just the same.” (Raymond Arroyo on Mother Angelica’s decision to enter religious life)
Seventy years ago, on this day, Mother Angelica said “yes” to the Lord and entered religious life. Here’s a nice article written by Raymond Arroyo which tells the story of what happened on August 15, 1944. On behalf of the millions who have been impacted by her decision, I’d like to say “Thank you” to Mother Angelica. Your “yes” has changed our lives forever. Happy 70th anniversary!
