A Light in the World, new program

We are pleased to introduce the newest member of the Radio Maria family of presenters, Ms. Christine Rossi.
Christine is a nationally recognized inspirational speaker whose reputation as a warm and witty trainer follows her everywhere.
She is consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and she walks her talk. Her background is in education and business, but her best schooling came from the University of Life.
She has travelled and lived in different areas of the United States and Europe, but feels at home no matter where she is speaking. During her travels, she heard many stories of negativity in the work place, as well as in personal lives.
In her program, A Light in the World, it is Christine’s intent to bring hope and love to all who feel fragile when negativity visits. She has been in compassionate ministries with hospice for 23 years, as well as serving as a regional director of the movement started by Saint Maximillian Kolbe, the Militia of the Immaculata.
Christine will use some of his powerful meditations in her broadcasts as she seeks to bring all souls to Jesus’ sacred heart through the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Rafael’s weekly journeys

Please meet Rafael Fernandez, our newest presenter in the Radio Maria family. Rafael is a self-proclaimed prodigal son, who was made into a lecturer, Eucharistic minister, lay minister and preacher for many groups and parishes, not to mention, being on the radio worldwide for 27 years! The son of Cuban parents, he was born in New York, raised in Miami and Seville, Spain, happily married to his lovely bride, with 5 kids and 4 grand kids, and many gray hairs! Rafael describes his program, Words of Confidence, as one “in which he will share the Word, then take a real life situation which he has just encountered through that week (by the way, it could be changing a tire to watching how they fix his roof, to putting down tile, or my daughter’s car blowing up for lack of oil, or better yet my wife nagging me for years to do my program in English and thus Radio Maria!) Then somehow God does the miracle of putting it all together, in the mix of laughter and sometimes tears, He never ceases to amaze me!” We invite you to experience Rafael’s weekly journeys on Wednesdays, at 1:30 pm Central/2:30 pm Eastern.
