The founder of the EWTN network passed away today, Easter Sunday. I personally take it as a favorable sign that she has gone straight to heaven. She suffered immensely during her last years, both in her illnesses and in the horrific way in which EWTN was wrested from her capable hands and deformed into a "church of nice" mouthpiece. Both of these would at least have greatly reduced any time she might have needed in Purgatory.
We also know that Father Thomas Uzhunnalil was crucified by ISIS on Good Friday. He died a martyr's death.
While we pray for the repose of the souls of both these witnesses for Christ and His Church, we can ask their intercession for the Church Militant that they have now left behind. Eternal light grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May their souls, and the souls of all the faithful departed, rest in peace.
I post now a video in which Mother gave some progressives a much-needed rebuke.
