Many of the people who have seen Mother Angelica on TV or read about her in newspapers will be interested in the comprehensive story of the nun and her accomplishments that unfolds in this affectionate biography. She was born Rita Rizzo in Canton, Ohio, in 1924. Educated in parochial schools, she overcame her supposed dislike for nuns and entered the cloistered order of St. Francis. Warmhearted, humorous and ambitious, young Sister Angelica determined to build a monastery in the South, where only 2% of the population are Roman Catholic. She established a community where she became abbess, Mother Angelica. The account of how she foundedwith little capital or knowledge of the television industryEWTN (Eternal Word TV Network), reportedly the fastest-growing cable medium in the U.S., can make anyone believe in miracles.
