Feast of the Body and Blood of the Lord
As the Church celebrates the feast of the Body and Blood of the Lord, sometimes known by the Latin name Corpus Christi (the Body of Christ) we celebrate the gift of the Eucharist. The gift of Christ’s very self was given to us to nourish us, forgive us, heal us and to continue to fashion us, the Church, as the Body of Christ living in the world. Each week on American Catholic Radio, we try to work with the Spirit in building up the Church through our choice of guests who bring you information and inspiration about Catholic life and faith. Our current lineup includes…
On “Living Faith”:
  • Television producer John Morales left FOX News to "do something meaningful" with his life. He recently produced a TV documentary called Champions of Faith, which tells the story of professional athletes and their Catholic faith.
  • Augie and Dawn Leal started Shine Catholic Work Camp in Texas, which hosts weeklong service retreats for incoming high school freshmen through college students, here in the U.S. and soon internationally. 
  • On “Exploring our Faith”:
  • Sister Peggy McDonald, professor of theology at Immaculata University in Pennsylvania, shares her insights into the prayer Jesus taught us, the Our Father.
  • Filmmaker Gerry Straub made a documentary called When Did I See You Hungry? The film, narrated by actor Martin Sheen, features 250 of Straub’s own black-and-white photos shot in India, Brazil, Kenya, Jamaica, the Philippines, Mexico, Canada and cities in our own country.
  • Catholic Radio is a powerful tool to cooperate with the Holy Spirit in building up the Body of Christ. American Catholic Radio is your partner in that work!
