VICTORY BEHIND BARS
Catalyst September Issue 2000
When Julian Harper called us this summer asking what we could do about a problem Mother Angelica of EWTN was having, we quickly came to her side. Two inmates at the Super Max Correctional Institution at Boscobel, Wisconsin, were being denied a shipment of spiritual books (one of which was written by Mother Angelica) on the grounds that they constituted contraband. We investigated and got the problem resolved.
The prison has an elastic definition of what constitutes contraband: it includes everything from “paper clips to staples.” At any rate, after several conversations with prison officials, special arrangements were made to deliver the EWTN package to Shannon Ingram and Antonio Manns.
