Mother Angelica died yesterday on Easter, the highest Holy Day in the Catholic Church and God’s timing could not have been more perfect. The death of Mother Angelica on Easter, the day we celebrate Jesus defeating death, is an incredible gift and reminder to us all! Mother Angelica’s new birthday is Easter March 27th 2016, and I could not have picked a better new birthday for her! She was born yesterday, into eternal life with Jesus, the Lord and King she loved so much, and God the Father and God the Holy Spirit she loved so much! I can only imagine the Heavenly Angels present at her earthly death, who carried her soul to Heaven, where our Queen of Heaven waited to take her into her arms, and lead her in a Heavenly Triumph to her Son, Jesus Christ! You can only imagine what God had waiting for Mother Angelica as her Heavenly reward!
Mother Angelica inspired me to be open to having seven children, write Light Weigh, Light Weigh One King and Building the Family Saints Cookbooks I & II. Mother Angelica changed my life and it has reverberated into everything I do and was inspired to do for God. A part of Mother Angelica is in everything we do here at Light Weigh. I learned something every time I listened to her. Mother Angelica was practical and reverent – she never diminished God and she never put God in a box! She was real enough to like good pizza and ice cream. She gave all credit to God for everything she was able to do for Him and others. She experienced many miracles from God and she also experienced immense attacks from the darkside who used others to attack her in ways too numerous to mention.
Many years ago, my family and I got to hold her hand and tell her how much we loved her and how much she had worked in my life and the life of our family. For that I will be forever grateful. Pray to Mother Angelica to intercede for you and your family. She has such a big heart and she understands our struggles! She was such an amazing bulldozer for God, and I know she is going to be a POWERFUL intercessory force in Heaven.
This week when you pull your yellow bead, offer it for Mother Angelica (yellow roses were her favorite!) and ask her to help you with a special intention.
