A True Visionary….

…….in more ways than one.

Who is the woman who started an international cable TV and radio network that reaches nearly 300 million households and is in over 140 countries? Not to mention this empire started out of a garage and a couple of hundred bucks to start it all.

Who is this woman?

She’s Mother Angelica.

Mother Angelica would be hailed as a trailblazer for women in the media if she weren’t a Catholic religious sister in a full habit. The international media presence she founded, Eternal Word Television Network, filed an emergency appeal to the Supreme Court and then found itself receiving a temporary injunction from the 11th circuit keeping them from having to be subject to the abortion-drug, contraception, sterilization mandate. More about the case here.
Here’s a  video  about Mother Angelica:
