That’s Why God Made the Radio!

Sounds like they are singing about Catholic Radio!

We Are All Catholics Now

“Jesus The Answer” – WJTA 88.9FM Catholic Radio Comes to Toldeo!

The Toledo Blade reports:

In a field next to a white farmhouse just west of this Putnam County village, a nearly 200-foot radio tower lies in pieces, waiting for the ground to dry out so that a crane can raise it into place.

Once the tower is erected, what’s expected to be the first Catholic radio station in the Diocese of Toledo should be on the air.

Holy Family Radio, with the broadcast frequency 88.9 FM, has the call letters WJTA, for “Jesus The Answer,” Jim Lammers, assistant director, said. The nonprofit station plans to broadcast Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN) programming and work in local announcements and live broadcasts of Masses from parishes in the listening area.

While Holy Family Radio may be the first Catholic radio station in the diocese, it won’t be alone for long.

Toledo-based Annunciation Radio is expected to go on the air later this summer, Deacon Michael Learned, president, said. Annunciation Radio plans a second station in Sandusky by the year’s end.

“By the end of the year we’ll have all of the north coast covered with Catholic radio, and, with the Dieterings’ help, we’ll be down in that area too,” Mr. Learned said.

“You take one of my cows, and I’ll take two of yours”

ReliefWeb reports:

“You take one of my cows, and I’ll take two of yours.”In Southern Sudan, this way of solving problems is much too common. Although Sudan’s 22-year second civil war ended in 2005, many people still turn to violence when disputes arise. The Catholic Church believes it’s time for this to change.

“Sudan has been undergoing 50 years of conflict,” says Sister Cecilia Sierra Salcido, a Comboni Missionary sister and director of Radio Bakhita. Sister Cecilia says this has caused many people to believe that retribution is good and that killing out of revenge is justified. “It’s good to challenge this worldview and invite people to understand the world in different ways.”

Beating the Drums for Peace

In February 2010, the Sudan Catholic Radio Network began Beat the Drums for Peace. This radio project—part of Catholic Relief Services’ $4-million initiative to support peace in Sudan—consists of 3-to-5-minute programs that share messages of peace and ways to peacefully resolve conflicts.

Between February and April, the project developed 10 messages about trust, peace, justice and individual responsibility. Radio Bakhita in the southern capital of Juba produces the messages in English. The station then works with six other Catholic stations to translate the messages into 10 languages, including variations of Arabic, Dinka, Nuer and Hausa.

USCCB Belongs to Pro-Abort Coalition Including Planned Parenthood Supporting Kagan with Video Ad

Lifesite News reports:

A civil rights coalition that boasts the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) among its members has published a 30-second ad endorsing Solicitor General Elena Kagan, who is pro-abortion and homosexualist, for the Supreme Court.The advertisement, which lists Kagan’s various achievements while President Obama describes the ideal Supreme Court nominee in a voiceover, is available on the website of The Coalition for Constitutional Values, a project of the Leadership Counsel for Civil and Human Rights (LCCHR). The Coalition for Constitutional Values also re-published a statement praising Kagan from the Human Rights Campaign, a leading homosexualist group in the U.S.

The pro-abortion and homosexualist lobbying activities of LCCHR, whose members must pay a $1000-minimum annual membership fee, are well-documented. On its website, the group lists the “right to privacy and choice” of abortion as among women’s rights, and pushes for same-sex “marriage” and other homosexualist legislation as a matter of civil “rights.”
