You would think that liberal publications like the NCR and Commonweal would extol the marvels wrought by a poor woman in the Church, Mother Angelica, who founded a worldwide Catholic media ministry. She did what the Catholic Bishops of the USA could not do, create a Catholic Cable Network. The one that the USCCB tried to create in the late 1980’s was a miserable failure.
When I brought that up to the late Bishop Lessard, with whom I lived in the same Cathedral rectory, back then, that the Bishops should just let Mother do it since she knows how, His Excellency became very indignant!
