Deepening Our Spirituality
As Catholics, we know that much of our religious experience is grounded in what we can see and touch and experience through faith-filled signs. The sacraments are a good example of this—powerful signs that unite us to God’s love in Jesus. Our faith cherishes many ways to strengthen our relationship with God. Our American Catholic Radio lineup this month will bring your listeners a variety of people who use diverse ways to deepen our spirituality.
The scapular is a traditional devotional symbol that connects with particular spiritual paths within the Church. Teenager Nick Wilson and his siblings run The Holy Family Scapular Company, while helping people rediscover the values of faith, love and sacrifice needed to preserve families.
Teacher, coach, counselor and public speaker Paul Bernarbei assists people in setting personal goals based on their faith.
Jim Mullaney—astronomer, author, speaker and self-proclaimed “celestial evangelist”—presents a program at retreats about how he believes in a very personal God even though our planet earth is seemingly a minuscule part of the universe. 
Poor Clare Sister Patricia Proctor is a contemplative nun who writes and produces Catholic radio and Web offerings.
Help your listeners celebrate our “incarnational” pathway to faith through the power of Catholic radio!
Father Greg Friedman, O.F.M.
