Retired TV nun Mother Angelica ‘doing well,’ still revered worldwide
Mother Angelica, who founded EWTN in the garage of the Our Lady of the Angels Monastery in Irondale inÂ 1981, has been a mainstay on the network throughout its history. But the â€œMother Angelica Live!â€ programs now airing were taped years ago.

She suffered her second major stroke on Christmas Eve 2001. That left her with partial paralysis and impaired speech.
