The nuns of Mother Angelica's monastery have thanked those who have prayed for the EWTN founder and have asked continued prayers for the 92-year-old nun.
"Mother's condition remains delicate and she receives devoted care day and night by her sisters and nurses," the nuns of Our Lady of the Angels Monastery said in a Feb. 22 update.
"Although she is most often sleeping, from time to time Mother will give a radiant smile. There is no doubt that her heart must be 'on things above,'" the nuns said, referencing St. Paul's Letter to the Colossians.
Mother Angelica founded Eternal Word Television Network in 1981. The organization would become EWTN Global Catholic Network. She headed the organization until the year 2000 and became one of the most influential Catholic women in the U.S.
