Angelica plans UK cable channel


MOTHER ANGELICA, the arch-conservative media nun billed by her London publicist as "the third most famous Catholic in the world", is to address a rally in central London tomorrow, where she is expected to reveal her plans to bring her US cable television channel to the UK.

The Faith of Our Fathers rally at Westminster Central Hall on Saturday will focus on "feminism in the Church, the failure of Catholic schools, and the loss of young people to the Catholic Faith". Mother Angelica, 74, an abbess of the Poor Clare nuns, is seen as a champion of Church orthodoxy. Much. of her venom is directed at America's ultra-feminist nuns, whom she feels are undermining the Church.

Three years ago she let rip during a live television show, Mother Angelica Live!, shown on her Eternal World Television Network. "I'm tired of your witchcraft," she told her adversaries.

"I'm tired of your inclusive language that refuses to admit that the Son of God is a man. I'm not going to take that any more. I'm proud to be a Roman Catholic."

Joining Mother Angelica are Jonathon Stephens of Youth 2000 and Church historian Fr Michael Clifton.
