One of Mother Angelica’s most famous videos went viral after an X-user (formerly Twitter) turned to the intercession of Blessed Carlo Acutis.

Will Anselm, who published a video of Mother Angelica calling out the liberal Church in America, said his post “exploded” in the early morning of May 1, 2024. The video generated approximately 200,000 views on Thursday, May 2.

Anselm rewrites the video, along with a photo of Blessed Carlo Acutis holding the Eucharist:

“Last night at 12:35 I made a devotion to Blessed Carlo Acutis, whose patronage is digital media and the Internet, especially for grace, guidance and wisdom in my use of social media as a service to Christ.

“At 1am this message exploded and so far more than 53,000 people around the world have seen and heard Mother Angelica absolutely cutting through theological modernism and liberalism.

“At least 50 people have discovered it @EWTN for the first time, and downloaded their app or asked how they can access Mother Angelica’s classic videos online.

“Blessed Carlo, pray for us!”

The original 28-minute video was Mother Angelica’s response to an article in The Denver Post about a performance by the Stations of the Cross on World Youth Day 1993 in Denver, Colorado. In the production, Jesus was depicted as a woman The Denver Post “called ironically… because the Catholic Church does not want to ordain women as priests.”

“No, that’s not ironic,” Mother Angelica replied. “It’s blasphemous.”

Here are Mother Angelica’s words in the recently surfaced viral video:

“You really have no God, you have no dogma, no doctrine and no authority, because the only authority in the Catholic Church is our Holy Father and the Magisterium, and you have rejected that. “You don’t believe in the Eucharist, you don’t believe in the Immaculate Conception, you don’t believe in the virgin birth, you don’t believe in the power of Mary’s intercession, you don’t believe in the religious life, you don’t believe in being a wife of Christ. “You Doing believe in teaching little kids third grade sex education. You really believe in pushing centered prayer and pushing inclusive language on us. And now you portray Jesus as a woman. You are sick.”

I turn to Blessed Carlo Acutis

Anselm said he turned to Blessed Carlo after participating in a meeting with other Catholic influencers on X (formerly Twitter). He then encouraged the group to turn to the young Blessed One and personally offered a prayer calling upon him.

“I had an extraordinary sensation, as if I were seeing him on his deathbed talking to his mother, and I felt immensely calm and reassured. As I left the conversation, I saw an innocuous tweet about Mother Angelica that exploded in views, likes, retweets and followers in just a few hours,” Anselm told ChurchPOP.

“It continued to escalate throughout the night, overwhelming my notifications. The next morning I realized that this level of engagement went beyond what I could predict from my analytics. I was convinced that this was due to the intercession of Blessed Carlo.”

How Mother Angelica and Carlo Acutis reflect the Eucharistic devotion

Because of Mother Angelica and Blessed Carlo’s deep devotion to the Eucharist, Anselm said he believes they are both “closely intertwined” and “both intimately linked to the defense of the Eucharist,” but “from two very different perspectives.”

“I am reminded of the most childlike and simple, yet profound terms that both Carlo and Mother Angelica referred to the Eucharist on different occasions,” Anselm began.

“Carlo famously referred to it as the genius of God, who is smart enough to hide Himself in a piece of bread – a very childish concept that confirms the Real Presence.

“Similarly, in parts of that video, which I unpacked and posted to then she goes on to speak of some who kneel, some who stand, some who pick their noses in the presence of the Real Presence,” he continued.

“It is unlikely that these holy and selfless Catholics together seem to point out almost without doubt the need to straighten out our attitude toward the Real Presence of our Lord Jesus Christ – Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity on the altar – to make…”

Anselm added that he believes that the bond between Blessed Carlo Acutis and Mother Angelica also calls the Church “to the proper dignity and catechized understanding of the Real Presence of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, Body, Blood, Soul and Protect and restore spirit.” Divinity, in the Blessed Sacrament of the altar, the Eucharist.”
