March 28, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – Mother Angelica could be (and usually was) sweet, funny, witty, personable and charming. But she also had a fierce side to her. She was a fighter.

And she was never more fierce than when confronting the degradation of her Catholic faith by “liberals” who she viewed as effectively replacing Catholicism with a false religion of their own devising – one without Christ, without the resurrection, without the Real Presence of the Eucharist, without any of the unpopular “hard” teachings on sexuality and family, without any of the difficult doctrines, without miracles.

In one famous instance she gave vent to her soul. “I am so tired of you, liberal Church in America!” she lamented, before listing the horrors she saw being perpetuated by faithless representatives of Catholicism, particularly on children.
