Mother Angelica, the nun who established a global broadcasting empire named EWTN , had a strong claim to be the most prominent Catholic woman in the US, and possibly even the entire world.

In Mother Angelica's twice-weekly homilies from her television studio (EWTN) in deepest Alabama, she embraced a deeply reactionary message. With the likely exception of the Pope, Angelica undoubtedly reached more people than any other religious icon on the earth, particularly in the context of Catholicism and Christianity. Angelica was born Rita Rizzo in Canton, Ohio, to impoverished Italian parents. This upbringing only served to inspire her more and, it could be argued, led to her success within the television and religious setting. Little did her family know that she would one day  be remembered for showering the world with faith, with her own channel ETWN. Here is a list of Mother Angelica quotes on living in the moment and quotes on holiness to enrich you with divinity.
