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.
helped me see suffering in a different way. wonderful narration. the love shines through. thank-you!
"Awesome performance by Mr. Aroyo"
Great Story . Great Eulogy/ Epitaph for a wonderful woman and Spiritual mother. Great Job Raymond’s Aroyo. Keep Writing and Performing.
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!
"Wonderful end to the story of her life! l"
Wonderful end to the story of her life! I hardly knew of her during her life but now a treasure her in death because of Arroyo's biographies.
this was a great book, Raymond Arroyo dose not disappoint like in all his books and audio book alike it's just simply awesome!
"Still changing lives!"
An honest book about Mother's silent years of suffering.
Mother touched our lived in the late 90s and we will always be grateful.
As people who remember to keep EWTN " between our gas and electric bill," we were thrilled to hear the testimony of many who have had their Faith in Christ and His Church kindled or rekindled by watching Mother's reruns. Mother would be proud of Raymond's telling of her final chapter.
"Mother is an inspiration"
No. I have read the other books on her and there was a lot of repetition.
The suffering she endured and her faith that never wavered.
I don't find Raymond's imitation of people's voices appealing. This is an audiobook not a play. Found his imitations kind of cheesy, and if I didn't know better almost mocking.
I liked to hear about how she bilocated and was unaware of it.
I loved the first book. This one not so much. There was a lot of repetition from the previous book and some issues left me unsettled. Very disappointed.
