It’s Still Cold Outside – Keep Your Heart Warm

Even if springtime is around the corner, it is still cold outside, and Radio Maria is still experiencing its own cold winter. Our “Heartwarming” campaign began two weeks ago, and as of today, we have reached about 25 % of our goal: $100,000.00.

We want to thank all who have contributed so generously to this extraordinary appeal. And to ask anyone who has not had the opportunity, to please help us with an “alms” this Lenten Season. It’s a wonderful way to fulfill your Lenten duty and contribute to the Spiritual Works of Mercy through Radio Maria.

We want to continue to warm the hearts of many– and even more– listeners whose hearts need warming this time of year– YOURS TOO!

Many thanks and God bless you all this Holy Season of Lent!

October 29, 2014 – Do not let your hearts be troubled; believe in God

In difficult circumstances, do we ask enough questions of Our Lord? In John 14, three of his Apostles ask for greater clarification. We also may do this in our challenging circumstances. However, the peace that Our Lord wishes to bring to our hearts may more substantially come from our belief in God. To better encourage us, Jesus in John 14 gives us several assurances. He reminds us that “in my Father’s house there are many rooms”, that “I will come again and will take you to myself”, and that “if you ask anything in my name, I will do it”. This is all in the same chapter that begins “Do not let your hearts be troubled”. By believing ever more firmly in God, we may find that when things do not work out the way we want them to, we can count on God to bring some greater good.

March 05, 2014 – Prayer, Fasting and Alms Giving; Sacrifice as Source of Renewal & Strength

Strength when we most need it can sometimes be elusive. We have seen how great athletes overcome great adversity by holding in their hearts a reward that goes beyond any accolade or gold medal. Common to them and to us this Lent is an opportunity to offer our efforts for a greater good, to sacrifice something we prefer for someone else. Through prayer, fasting and alms giving, we have an opportunity to draw closer to God. The result is the renewal of our strength and vitality. The champion David, in his fight against Goliath, shows us the way to do this.

August 25, 2013 – “Ordinary Sundays in Ordinary Time”

Many Catholics think of Ordinary Time as a rather dull time in the Church’s year–after all, there aren’t many important feast days. Nevertheless, there is a wealth of beautiful prayers and music for Ordinary Time.
