Mother Angelica turns 90 on April 20th. Do the sisters have anything special planned for her birthday? Is EWTN planning anything?

Raymond Arroyo:

I spoke with Mother Angelica and a few of the nuns earlier today.  They tell me they have a slew of practical presents for her, there will be a special Mass at the monastery on the 20th, and they are planning to give Mother some of her favorite foods on her birthday (including angel hair pasta and meatballs as well as vanilla ice cream and fruit–which she adores). EWTN is airing 90 hours of Mother Angelica’s shows.  My show, The World Over, will feature interviews with two of Mother’s nuns who live with her and have cared for her for years.  I’ll also share my own remembrances of Mother on the April 18th show (8PM Live).  EWTN Live will also feature a round table celebration before the big day.


Check back Saturday for the full interview with Raymond Arroyo! And join us every day next week as we celebrate Mother Angelica’s amazing 90 years of life!
