As many of you may know, Fr. Pacwa took over Mother Angelica's "Live" program when she suffered a stroke years ago.
Here's the statement from EWTN regarding Fr. Pacwa:
Statement of Michael P. Warsaw, Chairman & Chief Executive Officer, EWTN Global Catholic Network:
"At about 6:30 p.m. on Saturday evening, April 16, 2016, Fath...er Mitch Pacwa, S.J. suffered a heart attack while here in Birmingham. He has responded well to the angioplasty that was done Saturday night. In typical Fr. Mitch fashion, he commented, 'Apparently Heaven doesn't want me and Hell is afraid I will take over.' We ask our EWTN Family to keep Father Mitch in your prayers as continues his recovery."On Fr. Pacwa's Facebook page:
We pray for Fr. Pacwa's return to health and return to EWTN - as the Lord wills. Amen.
