Mother Angelica hospitalised by new stroke
Mother Angelica, the founder of the Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN), has been hospitalised and remains in critical condition after suffering a stroke on Christmas Eve.
Catholic World News reports that Mother Angelica was previously hospitalised in September after what her doctors characterised as a mild stroke.
A second stroke on Christmas Eve sent her again to the hospital, where doctors operated to relieve a blood clot in her brain.
The Poor Clare nun founded EWTN twenty years ago, and built the Catholic television network to its present status, reaching 70 million homes, claiming to be the largest religious media organisation in the world.
