Today, Mother's family has grown to encompass over 230 million viewers in over 140 countries via satellite, radio, and the web. All, who are now invited to watch, to listen, and to join us as we remember the life of the nun who brought us all together with her mission of spreading the splendor of Christ's Church to the world.
