Celebrating Sainthood
Sainthood is one of the most fascinating dimensions of Catholic life and identity. This month, we here at American Catholic Radio are celebrating sainthood. It’s the time for Franciscans to mark  the feast of St. Francis of Assisi, and so we’ll have some features devoted to him. Producer Judy Zarick will talk with lay Franciscan Domenick Morda, who is helping to bring the story of Sts. Francis and Clare to life on a new DVD program. Father Michael Crosby is a Capuchin Franciscan committed to preaching about Christ and sharing a Franciscan vision of the gospel. He’ll tell the story of Franciscan Father Solanus Casey, a holy friar whose cause for sainthood is in process. Producer John Feister will bring us the story of an American sister, Mother Theodore Guérin. She’s being canonized this month. He’ll visit with Sister Marie Kevin Tighe, vice postulator and promoter of the cause for Mother Guérin.
Holiness is contagious! Help us share these saintly stories with your listeners via American Catholic Radio.
We’ll keeping working to keep your listeners current and inspired!
Father Greg Friedman, O.F.M.
