Publisher's Summary

In a moving, dramatic conclusion to his four New York Times best-selling Mother Angelica books, Raymond Arroyo completes the saga of this singular nun with his most intimate book yet. Here are Mother Angelica's spiritual battles in her cell - including encounters with the devil. Revealed for the first time is the personal request Mother made of God - which sheds light on her long silence. Here are the unrevealed episodes of hilarity and inspiration; from playing possum (to avoid undesirable visitors to her room), to undertaking a secret trip to the far East, to blessing her nuns as they leave her care to create new monasteries, Mother Angelica's spunky spirit shines through the narrative.

MOTHER saved a soul

Thanks be to God for MOTHER. I was an alcoholic; once an alcholic, always an alcoholic. 4 years ago I was watching EWTN, through Mother's loving and tough love techniques, she actually saved my soul, through Jesus Christ. I was Episcopalian; I began to study the true faith, The Holy Catholic Church. The truth of our Holy Church. I read about the Church Fathers. My heart was on Fire!!!!!!! Now July 2016, my heart and soul are still on Fire!!! This Fire can't be extinguished!! MOTHER saved my life in this world as well as my Eternal World. When you listen to this heart and soul touching book you will have this loving fire inside your soul forever and no one will ever be able to put out that loving fire for Christ Jesus. We are so very Blessed to have The Holy Trinity. While I was listening, tears of joy and tears of sorrow pulsed through my heart..... It is difficult to write and have tears flowing at the same time. This book brought back my former life style and my current life style based on The Holy Catholic Church's love and teachings. Our Precious Savior, Jesus Christ heals more than physical problems. As MOTHER said, " don't worry about yesterday and don't worry about tomorrow, live in the moment." This book gives you everything you need as well as blessings you didn't even know you needed. If you want your life to change, if you want to know where God is leading you, this is the book to have. Once I started my audible book, I didn't take a break at all. I listened, I laughed, I cried, I prayed and gave thanks to God for bringing Mother Angelica into this world. Raymond Arroyo narrates this book beautifully. Thanks be to God for Mr. Arroyo and his initial introduction to Mother Angelica. He is so very talented and very much to the point. No sugar coating here!!!!!! This book must be in the home's of all Catholics. This heart wrenching book should be introduced to God's faithful Christian's around the entire world. It will bring people to the True Church of Jesus Christ, THE HOLY ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH. Please, when you see this beautiful book in a bookstore, or online, anywhere, it is a Christian must read now!!!!! Blessings, your sister in Jesus Christ.

Inspirational Life

Raymond Arroyos love for Mother Angelica comes through in his readings for this book. I laughed and cried. His ability to change voices as he tells of those who met Mother and loved her made it difficult to turn off. Just listen for a few more minutes was impossible!

a must read

truly one of the best books written on a modern Catholic saint. it truly taught me how genuine and real mother angelica was. she had the same short comings as everyone else but relied on Jesus to give her the strength to overcome her pride and self wants to become an living reflection of Christ.

Excellent

A fitting closure to the also excellent initial bio Arroyo wrote about Mother. Truly fascinating look at her last years and the stress the order was under for a host of reasons. Arroyo's voices, wry wit and true affection for faith and Mother shine through.

good story

It was a good story, well written, Amazing woman. I wish Raymond arroyo didn't do those annoying voices though. it came across as mocking. I would say that if you aren't inclined to read the actual book, you would still enjoy listening though.

We readers feel we're there, with Mother Angelica

This book is one of a kind! For those who knew a little about Mother Angelica, for those who knew a lot about her, for those who knew nothing about her, this book gives you the opportunity to not only know about her, but to love her and never stop thanking the Almighty for this beautiful soul that lived among us!
