Respect Life Sunday
On the first Sunday of October each year, our Church in the U.S. celebrates Respect Life Sunday. The theme that the bishops have given us for 2006—a theme to be carried out over the next 12 months—is “Created, loved and redeemed by God.” That phrase sums up all that God has done for each human being ever conceived. The fact that God creates, loves and redeems us makes each of us unique, a life to be cherished from conception to death. American Catholic Radio will offer your listeners some ways to reflect on this theme. Producer Judy Zarick will talk with Dr. Daniel Greene, a gynecologist who employs Natural Family Planning in his practice. He believes strongly in the culture of life and the Church's teaching on human sexuality. John Feister interviews Bishop Gabino Zavala, auxiliary bishop of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, who will talk about Catholics and the death penalty.
In the spirit of the All Saints Day, we’ll talk with Father James Martin, S.J., author of My Life With the Saints, who presents his favorite saints and tells how they’ve influenced him.
Happy autumn to you and to your listeners!
Father Greg Friedman, O.F.M.
