Item description for Mother Angelica's Private and Pithy Lessons from the Scriptures by Raymond Arroyo & Lorna Raver...

The founder of the world's largest religious media empire shares her beloved wit and down-to-earth spirituality in "Mother Angelica's Private and Pithy Lessons from the Scriptures." Editor Raymond Arroyo draws on hundreds of never-before-released private lessons to present the renowned nun's definitive take on the Good Book. Angelica provides readers with guided meditations and probing personal questions, and unearths an often-overlooked practical spirituality. She doesn't just explain the stories, she relates them to our daily lives, helping even those who've never opened the Bible appreciate its power and life-altering lessons. The apostles Paul (the little shrimp), Peter (that great bungler), and all the characters of the scriptures are suddenly human again, complete with their foibles and triumphs. Here is the Greatest Story, newly told as only Mother Angelica can. The Bible and you will never be the same.

Powerful Story -  Jan 12, 2010
Raymond Arroyo is the author of the biography of Mother Angelica. Mother Angelica gave the author a carte blanche for her life's story that reveals the background of a deeply religious, determined and strong individual.

Mother Angelica is the founder of the Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN). What is amazing is her powerful beliefs and ability to achieve, despite many physical and psychological handicaps. We see how closely tied she is to a mother who could not bear to see her only child go into a convent. Her own mother becomes a nun to be near her! Sister Angelica overcame personal demands, illnesses and negativity with her beliefs and perseverance. She was a cloistered nun that did not seem cloistered at all. Her achievements as a CEO in communications have been written up in media such as the Wall Street Journal.

When in high school, before becoming a nun, she took drafting courses, which helped her later overseeing construction of EWTN's new studio.

In 1981, when Ted Turner founded CNN, Mother Angelica, using her grit and beliefs, along with $200, founded what would become the world's largest religious media company.

She was born in 1923 to an Italian mother and father. She was named Rita Rizzo and abandoned by her father, who blamed her mother for getting pregnant after two years of marriage. Her mother was uneducated, but determined to keep her daughter, who was the focus of her life. Rita endured her mother's depressions, debt and her own physical ailments, which included intense stomach pains. Because by prayer, and inspiration from a local mystic, she became a cloistered nun, hoping to spend her life in private prayer away from a cruel world. But that was not to be. She soon became an international religious leader and founder of a religious network.

Rita (Mother Angelica) realized that her spirit, perseverance and need to spread the Catholic word, compelled her to monumental feats of faith and achievement. On faith alone, she built a communications empire without budgets - just "God's Providence". Her strong beliefs and personality brought both the poor and multi-millionaire followers that funded her "outrageous" inspirational callings that came to fruit. The EWTN is still going strong today with reruns of her daily teachings and quick wit continuing to play. Sister Angelica recently had a stroke, but she made sure that the EWTN network would sustain itself before she had to retire.

Raymond Arroyo writes with objectivity, and had more than five years of one-on-one discussions and interviews with Mother Angelica. The first few chapters are hard to read in that she had such a sad and tortured childhood. Her strong spirit comes through as she had to grow up fast and survive by finding good in all she meets. The book shows the power of faith. An inspiring story.
Mother Angelica's private and Pithy Lessons from the Scriptures  Dec 10, 2009
This is and excellent, down to earth quick review through the scriptures and everyday meaning. I highly recommend this book for all.
Good advice  Nov 23, 2009
This is a practical book about God and Jesus and life. It makes the Bible seem more accessible to people. Mother Anjelica is witty and down to earth and that makes you more comfortable with her.
Witty, funny, gives you a good feeling  Sep 7, 2009
I think it is enough to say that I am reading and ordering more books written by Mother Angelica. They are different. She doesn't repeat anecdotes in the books she writes. This is my third book that I've read and find that it was easy to pick up and learn something new. She is witty, funny, but throws no punches. She lets her readers know the end result of sin, no sugar-coating. But that there is hope for everyone.
Mother Angelica's Private & Pithy Lessons from the Scriptures  Sep 3, 2009
Mother Angelica makes it easier to understand & appreciate the Scriptures as well as to apply to our "ordinary" lives. She provides great insight, and makes learning our Faith more fun. Humorous, practical, easy to understand, enjoyable - a "true gem". Definitely would recommend to others.
