There is simply no avoiding the truth of the matter: if you are going to be a public figure with strong opinions and a quick tongue, you are going to be controversial. So no one should be surprised that Mother Angelica, the foundress of the Eternal Word Television Network, is controversial: the is a major public figure, she has strong opinions, and a quick tongue -- or at least, she used to, until struck by a major stroke a few years ago. Mother Angelica's absence from public life, however, does not mean that her influence doesn't continue to echo the world over. Now that she is out of the spotlight, it is the perfect time for a comprehensive biography to be written about her, something Raymond Arroyo attempts to bring to us in Mother Angelica, The Remarkable Story of a Nun, Her Nerve, and a Network of Miracles. But does he succeed?

When I started reading this book, I must admit I was not a huge fan of Mother Angelica. Don't misunderstand me, I had nothing against her; I just have a deep aversion to hero-worship (they don't call them "idols" for nothing), and I found that Mother Angelica had her fair share of "fans" (the root word, I might add, for "fanatic"). Now writing biography is a very tricky business, it is too easy to write a simple, 2-dimensional piece that does not really communicate the life of the person. A lot of traditional hagiography falls short in this way, I'm afraid. It is ok for devotional reading, but poor for real serious study. And so my trepidation was: would Raymond Arroyo really serve the full dish? Or would he limit himself to the sweeter-tasting parts of Mother Angelica's story, so as to present his "idol" in a best-possible (but ultimately unreal) light?

As biographies go, I will say that this is one of the better ones I've read.

The author shows that a very 'human' being with the help of God can be a great saint. Perfection, is not necessary. I requested a local library buy this book for its collection. Thank you West Vancouver library. The book is entertaining, endearing and inspirational. It is an uplifting book for Christians and non Christians alike.

Mother Angelica is definitely one of the most heroic figures of our time and a monument to the noble woman who take Jesus as their spouse. I really liked to listen to her life story read by Ramond Aroyo. Mother and Raymond are a great team. I liked the way he didn't 'sugar-coat' her story.
Buy it - you'll love it too. It really shows to me that real faith isn't cheap: it comes at a price. Rita Rizo(Mother Angelica) paid the price and she is so dear to my heart. Truly an amazing servant of the good God!
