Mother Angelica, the nun who founded EWTN, has been posthumously honored for her lifetime achievement in Catholic communications. One of her close collaborators said she wanted Catholic media to rely totally on God.
The Catholic Academy of Communication Professionals on June 2 awarded Mother Angelica its President's Medallion during the Gabriel Awards gala at the Catholic Media Conference in St. Louis, Mo.
Michael P. Warsaw, EWTN Global Catholic Network chairman and CEO, accepted the award. He said Mother Angelica had spoken with him about her expected legacy.
"She said her legacy, and the legacy of the network, would not be what had been done, but how it had been done – by relying totally and completely on the providence of God," Warsaw said.
