Irondale, AL (EWTN) – The Holy Rosary with Mother Angelica and the Nuns of Our Lady of the Angels Monastery will begin airing on EWTN Global Catholic Network on Saturday, March 1st.
The new Rosary, taped at The Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament in Hanceville, Alabama, will air each day on EWTN’s radio network at 5:00 PM EST and on television at 9:30 PM EST as well as simultaneously on the Internet (www.ewtn.com).
According to Doug Keck, Vice President of Programming and Production, EWTN’s production team taped Mother Angelica and her sisters on four consecutive days in October, as they prayed the Mysteries of the Rosary during their morning devotions. Keck said the Network would air the Joyful Mysteries, the Sorrowful Mysteries and the Glorious Mysteries as well as the new Luminous Mysteries introduced by Pope John Paul II as he proclaimed 2003 The Year of the Rosary.
Keck noted that Mother Angelica was extremely happy to participate in the tapings because she knew she was joining her prayers with those of her EWTN family, whom she misses so much.
Despite the fact that Mother Angelica still has difficulty communicating properly as a result of the serious stoke she suffered on Christmas Eve in 2001, she was able to lead many of the prayers of the Rosary.
Sister Mary Catherine, Vicar of Our Lady of the Angels Monastery, said, “We are so grateful that Mother Angelica was able to be a part of the Rosaries, and I’m sure the EWTN family will find them to be an inspiration.” She noted that Mother Angelica attends daily Mass with the Nuns and spends much of her time each day in prayer, in front of the Blessed Sacrament.
EWTN Global Catholic Network, in its 21st year, is available in more than 80 million television households in 107 countries, and is the largest religious media network in the world.
