Mother Angelica: An Inspiration for StoryTel

Mother Angelica's EWTN has been so supportive of StoryTel and we are so grateful for it. Here is a great blog post we found about Mother Angelica by blogger Jennifer Fulwiler

What Mother Angelica Taught Me About Radical Faith

 Inspired by Mother Angelica's example of radical faith, I recalled the lessons from her biography, and  came up with the top eight things that the rest of us can learn from her example

Here is our favorite part:

 Just start

 All throughout Arroyo's biography, you see the message of: "Just start." When Mother Angelica would sense that God was calling her to do something, she didn't wait until she had all the answers about how  it would work out. She would simply take that first step forward, and trust that she would get the  resources and information she needed to take the next step when that time came. When she first felt  the call to build a TV studio, here is how she responded:

She instructed the builder to expand the slab to accommodate a "television studio." The man looked bewildered, as if the nun had just spoken to him in Aramaic. "I don't know anything about a TV studio," he said.

"I don't know anything about it either, but that's not the point. We're going to build  one," Mother declared. With no dedicated funds, no business plan, and no hesitation,  Angelica faithfully leapt into independent television production.

"Unless you are willing to do the ridiculous, God will not do the miraculous," Mother said  of her sudden decision. "When you have God, you don't have to know everything about  it; you just do it."
