On Air!

Have you ever turned on the radio just in time to hear someone say or sing something that impacted your mind and heart – something that broke through an endless cycle of hopeless thoughts, or gave you needed encouragement? Catholic Radio has such a mission; a mission to bring the riches of our faith and hope in Christ to all people through the airwaves. Just recently this month, the Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament was flooded with over 150 faithful Catholics who posses an extraordinary vision and goal. An International Radio Conference composed of people who currently run a Catholic radio station and those who are rookies in such a venture, spent a day here in discussion and prayer. It was incredibly inspiring to join these men and women in prayer at the Mass. Our own Bishop R. Baker preached a powerful homily on the necessity to “rejoice in hope, be patient under trial, persevere in prayer” (Romans 12:12) especially when undertaking such pronounced missionary work. He spoke of the hardships that have been and would be encountered by those committed to spreading the light of the Gospel. The cost for souls is great. Please pray for these courageous men and women who are taking St. Paul’s words with absolute seriousness: “I will gladly spend and be spent for your sakes” (2 Cor 2:15) and “woe to me if I do not preach the Gospel (1 Cor 9:15)! ” As the work of Catholic Radio continues to impact our world, let us also preach the Gospel by our words and actions! Live Jesus!

A group of men from Jacksonville visit the shrine every year right after Easter. With us are two men who have a live show on Queen of Peace Radio. Catholic Radio is a true blessing to us all.

We have Guadelupe Radio in Texas. It is all I listen to... There are so many quality programs offered and we are so blessed to have this program. It is so wonderful to pick up my girls from school and be able to sing The Divine Mercy with them on our way home. May God continue to bless these men and women who are working so hard to spread the Word and Truth of the gospel.. Kim McBride

Thank God for such wonderful programming everywhere. It is quite discouraging to turn on the radio and hear other certain stations with such negative music, commercials, and comments. I am lifted to hear the word of God and am glad and thanksful for those courageous men and women everywhere spreading the Gospel because I am one of the many lucky one's who gets to hear and be reminded to stay on the right path....God's path :)
