Mother Angelica Honored by Pope Benedict XVI
The Alabama nun who founded EWTN is being recognized by Pope Benedict XVI.
Mother Mary Angelica was given the Cross of Honor, which is the highest honor a pope can give.
The cross honors those for their distinguished service to the Roman Catholic Church.
The 68-year old Mother Angelica founded EWTN back in 1981 in Birmingham. [not… 86 year old?]
It’s now called the world’s largest religious media network.
