The president of the Vatican’s Pontifical Council for Social Communications visited EWTN’s headquarters in Irondale, Alabama on June 1. He visited the Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament in Hanceville, where he met with EWTN foundress Mother Angelica and gave her a rosary from the Pope.
Michael P. Warsaw, president and chief executive officer of the EWTN Global Catholic Network, told CNA that Archbishop Claudio Maria Celli’s visit was “certainly a great honor” and a “tremendous boost” to the broadcaster’s efforts.
He reported that the archbishop visited Mother Angelica and presented her with a rosary “as a personal gift from the Holy Father.”
The prelate toured the EWTN Television Network, the EWTN Radio Network and the EWTN Religious Catalogue.
