Thursday, April 20, marked the 100th birthday of the late Mother Angelica, the formidable Franciscan nun who founded the Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN) headquartered in Irondale, Alabama.
Catholic journalists are “called to do our part to be truth tellers,” even in the face of rising intolerance toward religious belief, traditional moral values, and the very idea that objective truth even exists, EWTN CEO Michael P. Warsaw said Saturday.
EWTN Global Catholic Network has presented the 2022 Mother Angelica Award to former NFL star and coach Danny Abramowicz in honor of his lifetime of service to the new evangelization.
EWTN Chairman & Chief Executive Officer Michael P. Warsaw presented the inaugural award to Chaput during an Aug. 15 ceremony that was broadcast around the world by the Network. The date also marks the 40th anniversary of the Network’s launch on the Solemnity of the Assumption in 1981.
