Published by Image Books
In 1981, a simple nun, using merely her entrepreneurial instincts and $200, launched what would become the world’s largest religious media empire in the garage of a Birmingham, Alabama, monastery. Under her guidance, the Eternal Word Television Network grew at a staggering pace, both in viewership and in influence, to where it now reaches over a hundred million viewers in hundreds of countries around the globe.
Raymond Arroyo combines his journalist’s objectivity and eye for detail with more than five years of exclusive interviews with Mother Angelica. He traces Mother Angelica’s tortured rise to success and exposes for the first time the fierce opposition she faced, both outside and inside of her church.

Praise for 
MOTHER ANGELICA 
“A rattling good story of fear, faith, courage, and bulldog tenacity,beautifully told. The drama of Mother Angelica’s life is a powerfulreminder that the extraordinary lies just beyond the ordinary—if we have eyes to see and ears to hear.”
George Weigel
, author of 
Witness to Hope:The Biography of Pope John Paul II
“Raymond Arroyo invites the reader to join him on the wild ride of the Holy Spirit that transformed Rita Rizzo into Mother Angelica,one of the feistiest and most effective evangelists of our time. It isan invitation not to be declined.”—Father
Richard John Neuhaus,
editor-in-chief of 
First Things
magazine“In Raymond Arroyo’s entertaining
 Mother Angelica,
she emerges asa daring entrepreneur who really did do it all for God and as a tra-ditionalist who has felt the need to challege the ‘progressive’wingof the American Catholic Church...He is a solid journalist andhis account makes it pretty clear that Mother Angelica is both atough nut and something of a diva under her wimple.”
 —The Wall Street Journal
“Raymond Arroyo masterfully captures the complexities, humanity,and tenacity of Mother Angelica, who has long been one of my own personal heroes. The founder of the Eternal Word TelevisionNetwork, Mother Angelica is a woman who dared to dream, tostand up for what she believed in, and whose faith showed thatanything is possible. In Arroyo’s hands, she becomes someone youwish you had the opportunity to know and love. Read this book and believe.”
Nicholas Sparks
 
“A superbly written, broadly researched biography of a fascinating,audacious, stubborn and deeply religious woman.”
 —St. Anthony Messenger 
“Mother Angelica is one of the greatest entrepreneurs of all time,and is truly one of my heroes. With his ‘insider’perspective, Ray-mond Arroyo has done a masterful job capturing not only Mother’simmeasurable accomplishments but also her remarkable personal-ity. Like Mother herself, this book has the unique combination of being both inspiring and entertaining.”
Thomas S. Monaghan,
founder of Domino’s Pizza andChancellor of Ave Maria University “The book is a solidly researched, professionally told account of oneof the most improbable successes of recent years.”
 —National Review
 Mother Angelica
is a fascinating read about an amazing woman.”
 —St. Cloud Visitor 
“Raymond Arroyo, one of America’s leading journalists in reportingreligion, has written a fascinating story of how faith transformed acloistered nun into a media giant. This is an exciting rendition of astory that is more extraordinary and surely more heartwarmingthan fiction.”
Robert Novak,
syndicated columnist“Mother Angelica’s personal words to me, her courageous example,and her constant prayers helped inspire my portrayal of Jesus in
The Passion of the Christ.
No one could have captured the essenceof this modern-day saint better than Raymond Arroyo. His narra-tive gifts and understanding of Mother are clearly evident in thistruthful and often candid depiction of one nun’s struggle to bringGod to the multitudes. Surely this book, and Mother’s life willhave an incredible enduring legacy.”
 James Caviezel,
actor
