Mother Angelica’s ‘First Daughter’ Sister Regina dies

YouTubeSister Mary Regina of the Holy Angels, the first religious sister to join Mother Angelica’s monastery in Hanceville, Alabama, died July 22 at age 78 after a battle with cancer.

“As Mother and her sisters were building the monastery in Irondale, a friend brought her [Jo Ann Magro, 16 years old] there where she met Mother for the first time. At that moment she heard the Lord say, ‘Come,’” Father Wolfe wrote in an email interview.
