Nothing has ever wounded the Heart of Jesus more than ingratitude. 

Fr. Bonaventure Heurlautlare (Father Founder, Poor Clares of Perpetual Adoration)

MothersNameOne year ago on March 27th, 2016, Mother Angelica passed on to eternal life. It was Easter Sunday, just before evening when she went home to God. In the Scriptures which Mother loved so much, that was the time (close to Easter evening) when the two disciples going to Emmaus, distraught and discouraged, met the Risen Lord. What He said of Himself is also reflected in the members of Christ’s body and Mother herself: “Was it not necessary that the Christ should suffer these things and enter into His glory?” (Lk 24:26). Filled with gratitude for Mother’s life, we continue to give thanks for her who is among those that as the Roman Missal says, “have gone before us marked with the sign of faith.”  We give thanks for her love for Our Lord and the Church, her zeal for souls, her vocation, her passion for evangelization, her humor, her silent suffering; all these gifts that have born fruit. And we are grateful to you too who supported Mother and her endeavors for the Faith over the years. May God continue to fulfill the good works that He began through her innumerable “yeses” and keep us faithful until the end!

 A Quip from Mother herself: “We worry about the past, we worry about the future, and we worry about the present. I mean, what worry-warts we are! We worry instead of saying, “He’s watching me. He sees me and He loves me.” That’s why He says, “Courage. It is I, do not be afraid.”
