Bishop Rhoades has designated today, the 3rd Sunday in Ordinary Time, Catholic Radio Sunday in our diocese. He writes:
I am grateful that we have Redeemer Radio, a lay apostolate that transmits quality Catholic programming across our diocese. I am also grateful for the support you and your parish already give to Redeemer Radio. Catholic Radio reaches people whom we might never encounter in our ministry: people who are searching, people who are hungry for the truth of the Gospel, the unchurched, and Catholics who are inactive in the practice of the faith.
I believe so strongly in Catholic radio’s power to evangelize that I have devoted substantial time to do a weekly broadcast on Redeemer Radio called Truth in Charity that airs Wednesdays at noon and Saturdays and replays Saturdays at 11 am. The show not only provides another medium to teach, it also gives me an opportunity to connect with the faithful in an approachable way, even answering questions submitted by listeners.
The Fathers of the Second Vatican Council stated, “Ample encouragement should be given to Catholic transmissions which invite listeners to share in the life of the Church and which covey religious truths” (Inter mirifica 14). I encourage all the faithful to listen and support Redeemer Radio, our local Catholic Radio station.
St. John Paul II once said that when we work we not only make more, but we become more. What does this statement mean to today's business leader? Andreas Widmer, co-founder of The SEVEN Fund, a philanthropic organization promoting enterprise solutions to poverty, will share what it means to him as a seasoned business executive with experience in high-tech, international business strategy, consulting and economic development.
