“The Church needs to be concerned for, and present in, the world of communication, in order to dialogue with people today and to help them encounter Christ.”
– Pope Francis
“Mother Angelica was well known to countless individuals in the Diocese of Scranton through her founding and frequent presence on the Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN), carried by our CTV: Catholic Television station. She was truly a pioneer in helping to spread the faith across the globe and we are grateful for her good work.”
– Bishop Joseph C. Bambera
