Upcoming Programs
Holy Week
The Lenten season ends with next week’s celebration of Holy Week and then the Easter Triduum—the three-day celebration of Jesus’ death and resurrection. In Catholic parishes like my own, in Cincinnati, Ohio, Catholics will gather to pray and recall the great events which gave us life, and welcome new members. In these final days of Lent, the Church’s liturgy begins to focus on Christ’s passion and death. The Scripture stories are a large part of the liturgical celebrations in these days. To help your listeners understand the biblical stories, we’ll visit with one of our country’s most prominent Catholic biblical scholars, Father Donald Senior, president of the Catholic Theological Union in Chicago and member of the Pontifical Biblical Commission in Rome. Father Senior will talk about the holy city of Jerusalem and the Passion Narratives in the Gospels.
Producer Judy Zarick wraps up her series of “Living Faith” interviews with members of local RCIA programs welcoming new members into the Church, and our weekly “Catholic Treasures” will feature Lent-related topics.
I will remember your listeners and your radio ministry in my prayers during these days. Together, may we celebrate the Church’s holiest days and the richness of our faith! Let’s thank God for the privilege of bringing that richness to your listeners with American Catholic Radio!
Father Greg Friedman, O.F.M.
