4 Ways Catholic Radio Can Bring Families Together

In the early 1980’s Sister Lucia of Fatima prophetically foretold the battle we see today between the kingdom of Jesus and Satan over marriage and the family. But she also added that Our Lady has already crushed his head and we have nothing to fear.


As marriage and family are attacked through legalization of homosexual so-called “marriage”, organizations that promote destruction of the traditional family, and abortion expansion, we need tools to keep our hope in Christ Jesus. Catholic radio is such a tool and here are four ways it can bring (and keep) families together:


  1. Catholic Radio Defends Traditional Marriage and the Family


The Catholic Church promotes and defends the institution of marriage as the union of one man and one woman. Canon Law refers to marriage as an irrevocable covenant (Canon 1057, 2), a partnership ordered toward the good of spouses and the procreation and education of offspring (Canon 1055, 1).


This has been affirmed in the encyclicals Casti Connubii (On Christian Marriage) and Humanae Vitae (regarding sex, marriage, contraception and other issues). These are unpopular concepts in today’s world and, unfortunately, even in some Catholic circles.


You can be assured that Catholic radio not only defends the truth of traditional marriage and family, but provides encouragement and information to strengthen them. Use the search box on programs like The Simple Truth or Sermons for Everyday Living to explore these topics further.


  1. Call-In Shows Provide Guidance to Heal Families


Personality clashes, differences in beliefs, disagreements about moral decisions and conduct of life—all families, whether nuclear or extended, experience these things. When you need a new (but still Catholic) perspective, you can count on Catholic radio.


Programs with guest speakers and call-in shows like The Doctor Is In with Dr. Ray Guarendi and Take 2 with Jerry Usher and Debbie Georgianni meet people where they are at and offer suggestions for communicating with family members.


In a world that sensationalizes break ups and promotes a narcissistic culture, the truth spoken with love by program hosts promotes restoration of relationships and healing in families.


  1. Catholic Radio Programs Bring Families Together In Prayer


Routine prayer gives a rhythm and peace to our days. On The Station of the Cross you will find regularly scheduled programs featuring the Mass, Holy Hours, the Rosary, and the Divine Mercy Chaplet. Pray with the Catholic radio community at home on your own, listen in the car and pray with your family on the go, or use our iCatholicRadio mobile app to listen at your convenience.


Jesus said, “Where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I in the midst of them” (Matt 18:20). And Father Peyton said, “The family that prays together, stays together.” Where Satan seeks to divide, Catholic radio counters the culture by praying and inviting Jesus into our lives to unite believers in truth.


  1. Join with Other Families In Your Community through Catholic Radio


Catholic radio also unites listeners by announcing events at the local, regional, and  national levels. The Station of the Cross has an online community calendar that shares local Catholic events, special guest speakers at parishes, and  prayer gatherings of peaceful protest at abortion facilities (including the national Men’s March).


Other events via EWTN are announced such as the national March for Life and Women of Grace retreats. Individuals, families, and the entire Catholic community are strengthened when we gather as the Church Militant here on earth.


Join Our Family of Listeners


Catholic radio is informative, helpful, and even entertaining. It also staunchly defends marriage and the family, helps guide families to heal wounded relationships, and facilitates gathering in prayer at home and in the community.


Take advantage of these opportunities by listening live, at thestationofthecross.com, or by downloading the iCatholicRadio app on your tablet or mobile device.
