    AMU featured on EWTN

    I don’t know if you saw the EWTN show that Colleen Carroll Campbell hosts on Wednesdays that aired last night at 6pm (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MNZMDkEHT40).  She was very kind to spotlight Ave Maria’s 22% reduction in the tuition and fees “sticker price” for next fall, and also explore how Ave Maria happily promotes our love of the Catholic Church in so many ways, including through the new Mother Teresa Project.  Colleen is a natural and so good at what she does - and if you read her hugely successful “My Sisters the Saints” book she published last year (which is coming out in paperback in 2014) then you know that her talents are many.  I have known her for years and her three beautiful children (she is expecting her fourth in February) as well as her wonderful husband (John, a medical doctor who cares for elders).  They moved from their comfortable lives in St. Louis to undertake this adventure in Catholic television. The Church needs more voices like Colleen’s in order to harvest the fruits of the feminine genius that Pope Francis recently touted.  Mary Ann Glendon, Helen Alvare, Colleen and others have much to offer the Church as it engages the culture and transforms it.
