I was surprised to find that many of the people in our church were unaware of the Catholic Radio now available in so many places. I asked for it to be put in the parish bulletin.

Have any of the rest of you tried this, to let our loved ones know as many of them are listening to non Catholic Christian Radio?

Check out the post here under “Catholic Music” Most Catholic Radio I am finding is actually better on the Internet.

www.CatholicMusicNetwork.com
www.SacredHeartMusic.net
www.Omegarock.com (actually Omegarock plays A LOT of Christian music and not too much Catholic music for today’s youth).

By Catholic radio do you mean EWTN ? I’m sorry to have to report that things broadcast there disturbed me so much that I tune to what you term as non-Catholic programmes.
The people there and the version of Catholicism they for the large part promulgate caused me to lose my faith and made me the Disillusioned man I am now.

A priest even told me that getting hooked would probably hurt my beliefs as Mother Angelica was “surrounded by right wing nutcases”.His opinions aside, she did questionable things on air-long “chats” with emissaries from orders banned by the Vatican (that’s a little rebellious ?), she takes the Amsterdam devotion and Coredemption as fait accompli (again it’s not effective spiritual etiquette)and I must admit that the Youth Programme did improve, but really we reached breaking point in terms of what was going on to draw the teens in.I was concerned at the fact that they said some very silly things, racial harmony does not rely on as extending colour to the angelic realm and other such nonsense.

If you could tell me of a different network that broadcasts for Catholics I would give it a go.The Vatican Radio is a model of sensible style, only trouble is that they don’t send out enough of their beautiful meditations written by very worthy priests in English.

Compare the Vatican Radio Latin Mass (Novus Ordo) with that shocking thing that comes over EWTN…It’s risible, they employ someone with actressy English to deliver the enchiridion, and tag the lovely prayer of S Thomas Aquinas with cheap drama involving the Sanctus chant.
Our Lord’s words of consecration are also stagily presented.

When will people wake up to the fact that the Holy Mass is not theatre .

Well I grumble once more but I seem to recall that many years ago before the widespread use of television, people high in the church warned that dignity might vanish if the liturgy be filmed. I think that’s happening now…sit back in your chair and let EWTN almost entertain you in the name of the Church.That’s bad…it certainly undermined my faith to consider that it could be done.

Coda-Gommar de Pauw of the Catholic Traditionalist Movement has his broadcast Tridentine Mass stuck in the middle of thoroughly Protestant evangelical and evangelistic shows on World Wide Christian Radio.Prior to him, I had never heard the old rite…his group is probably no longer in favour, I don’t know if he goes as far as the SSPX but my solution whilst I had a faith was to go to churches that say the Tridentine Rite.

So what do you think about Catholic Answers, since you already on this site? What do you think about CA’s radio program? Does CA satisfy your desire in learning about the Catholic Fatih. Maybe the Apologists at CA may find you a Catholic Network to your liking.

Wow, I have never heard negative things about EWTN other than from extremely liberal Catholics. Your comments surprise me. Mother Angelica is only on in reruns so I may not be familiar with what you are refering to as I have not been watching more than a year. I have found EWTN radio to be most helpful in my faith development. I love Catholic answers (why I am here 🙂 and other shows like the doctor is in. I also like being able to say the Rosary in the car and the chaplet of Divine Mercy. I also like being able to hear mass as I drive my child and her friends to Catholic school. I don’t have to worry about what inappropriate songs will come on.
I know there are other Catholic radio producers. I hope there is one in your area.

True, the post I answered really suprised me too.
However,there are some out there that dispise Mother Angelica. I can’t see how. A elderly woman that I know who watches EWTN will watch the network,but when Mother comes on, the woman will tune Mother off.

The only ‘agenda’ that EWTN has is to spread The Truth and the Truth is Christ and His Church. Period!

We got a 24-hour a day, 7 day a week Catholic radio station in town.

This station is the first ever (and maybe only?) Catholic radio station in existence that was started by, is privately owned by, and 100% financially funded by laypeople.

It’s FM, of course.

In the evenings it receives feed from EWTN Radio.

In the daytime it is self-run. I love listening to the kids’ songs in the morning while I’m driving to work.

SO MUCH better than non-Catholic Christian radio because at noon is the live feed of the daily Mass at the diocesan cathedral… and at 3pm is the Divine Mercy… and at 7pm is the rosary.

From 9 to midnight, it’s live programming, discussion, and the rosary – all in Spanish because of the relatively high level of Spanish-speaking people in this area.

Gloria por Tu gracias!!

Radio and TV are problematic.Listening to the Mass is OK , but it cannot substitute really for parish involvement and I sometimes get the bad impression that overly English voice who reads an enchiridion wants us to think so.No, to the best of your ability you should hear mass in a church and have gone there.

England has its difficulties, I heard a Gregorian Mass from a monastery ruined by a running commentary telling everyone in the most pedestrian manner what was going on, we have some masses from cathedrals drenched in ecumenism and politicised Christianity which need to be looked at-at one time of day politics did not creep into the liturgy at all, now it does and the result is a little depressing.

The main non-Catholic network does something odd, they are frequency pirates.At the moment, total religious programming is not allowed by law except on short wave and satellite. Yet Contemporary Christian Music which bawls on all day is there alongside shows from modern congregations and recogisable evangelists…they’ve jumped the legislative gun and hardly improved their chances and image .

People watch EWTN here using satellite, and the Internet.Many Catholic papers recommend it in most of their TV columns.

In the Seventies a rather unusual station called Vox Fidei used to be on short wave transmitted from Zurich Switzerland.It was not what it seemed-very traditionalist, lamenting the lack of fruit after the Council but communication with its founder grew grandiose and stranger.The literature was badly translated and by the end , we were in a web as thick as that around Veronica Lueken and Bayside.He ran out of money and his station shut down, not all Catholic stations are truly Catholic.

Lueken did go on cable TV I believe and I heard her stuck on WWCR …she did have a following.
 
Wow from me also! I have been watching EWTN TV for several years now and have never heard or seen anything that is not true to the Church. I am not sure what Disillusioned might be referring to.

Another very good source for Catholic radio programming is Relevent Radio. They have quite a few local stations carrying their programs. Jeff Cavins has the morning show which is very good. There is also Ave Maria radio. All of these networks have some overlapping in programming.

Ave Maria Radio broadcasts on the internet----

Relevent Radio also broadcasts on the internet—

Veronica Ann, thanks for the info on KBVM. I let them know I would listen to their internet broadcast if they offered it.

Here in Cleveland, we had the first privately owned and run station from 1995-1998-WMIH 1260. Unfortunately at the end of April 1998. the station was sold to all people…Radio Disney! :eek: What a joke that was! :mad:

I’m really surprised that we have not had a Catholic radio station established here in the Atlanta area. There was an effort a couple years ago by a group called Avila radio, but they just couldn’t get the funding. They, too, planned on utilizing the EWTN feed. It’s definitely a shame and very difficult to get Catholic anything down here in the Bible belt.

This floors me since EWTN has done so much to encourage my faith. For a long time it was banned here in Canada. I can’t tell you how many letters I have written and prayers I have said to be able to finally recieve it (legally that is). I was fortunate since I live near the US border I was able to get Catholic radio in Detroit. I have never heard anything on EWTN that was not faithfull to the Magesterium.
About those “right-winged wackos” you speak of… haven’t most of the Catholic Answer personalities been on at one time or another? 😃
 
Poisson, I am with you as EWTN has changed my life for the better and caused me to learn more about my faith and therefore strengthen my faith. My faith journey would be stuck in first gear if it wasn’t for EWTN and Mother Angelica.

Also, thankfully with the internet we can receive Catholic radio. Catholic programming is just a click away.
 
I love Relevant Radio. I can listen only over the Internet, since I live in the land of United Secular Socialist Republic of Massachusetts. I have asked that info on Relevant Radio be posted in the Parish Bulletin, so maybe we can find enough Catholics here to get a Catholic Radio Station. I fear this will be a long, hard battle.

As of EWTN, I credit Mother Angelica with bringing be back into my faith a few years ago.

:crying:

Oh, my!!

Of course, if you have a choice, you MUST go to Mass in person.

But, gee… have you yet considered how many thousands and millions of people are just plain UNABLE to physically attend Mass?

Like the sick… the dying… folks who live absolutely NOWHERE NEAR a Catholic church…

Gee… the comfort to just WATCH the Mass… so that they can at least attend it in spirit…

And… if I may… well, um… I happen to absolutely LOVE the fact that there is more than one accent speaking the English that we hear.

And… hmm… OVERLY English voice??

OVERLY”?!?

Like – do you mean that woman’s voice is speaking English with an accent from the British Isles?

Gimme a break! 😦

It’s really a shame that you seem to be so offended by that woman’s accent.

If for NO other reason than hearing a different accent than my own for English underlines the fact that we are a TRULY multi-national and multi-geographic and multi-language church.

👍

Praise be to God that we are!!
 
to disillusioned,

i’m always a little guarded when looking at the public profile and it’s blank… i wonder what there is to hide… possibly that your not catholic (i guess never have been)… i have watched EWTN a long time and i haven’t seen the things you and the so-called priest you mention have commented on… either way, there is enough truth to help you scratch your way back from the pit this station has pitched you into… if disagreement with certain people cost you your faith so easily, my guess is you price for faith is pretty cheap, but, i accept your comments, i just don’t buy what your trying to sell… me thinks a protestant is protesting… 👍
 
Disillusioned, WOW, tell us what you really think!

You people have it wrong. I am a disillusioned Catholic, if you read other posts I have made it clear that I am not being deliberately spiteful and much less am I a Protestant.

I was told about right wing nutcases on EWTN when I wrote a letter of concern to a Communications Project run by the Jesuit Order.Those are the words of a priest, not mine.I had letters published in English Catholic newspapers where I made it clear that this TV simulacrum of faith was not the best thing since sliced bread.

I am not fabricating the appearance on Mother Angelica’s programme of a priest from Opus Angelorum. This is a banned order, its spirituality has gone haywire and the Vatican made severe warnings about it.EWTN told us nothing about this, the cleric guest was received as if what he preaches about the supernatural realm is worthy of ordinary Catholics’ attention.The Reverend Mother does similar things now around the Amsterdam devotions and the Lady of All Nations-jump gunning a devotion that the Vatican does not yet approve.

Theologically there are forgivable slip-ups :a man saying that Rome was able to destroy Carthage because the Carthaginians were like the Canaanites in the Bible, their religion was morally corrupt. Well that’s what a classical education does for you-the Romans were pagan as well and all cultures including Israel practised at one time human sacrifice.
Scott Hahn and Jeff Cavins sometimes don’t leave their pasts behind,their theology is not the easiest …Jeff just did silly things on the youth show, maybe he was meant to, but I think now the programme will confirm the faith of more young people.

So really you are not going to be able to say that I’m attacking because I’ve never seen the channel.Barbara Mcguigan read an e-mail from me, where I explained how the issue of contraception was also eroding my faith and esteem for a Church I once sincerely trusted and believed in.Courteous that on this occsion they replied-my long handwritten theology is often flatly ignored or laterally observed upon.What is it with Americans and "penmanship "? (Joke)

Don’t fear me-this board is going to take the place of tuning in EWTN.It’s like being in a room full of seminarians and students all over again.

Disillusioned, I must say, I am somewhat fascinated by your comments. I find it somewhat interesting how you attack the best well know and admired Catholic Apologists and Theologians! You can say you are not attacking them, but we both know that you are.

I am still not quite sure wether you have a God complex or a Pope complex, but I get the strange feeling we are going to find out soon enough.

One thing I know for sure, you reep what you sew, with strong opinionated comments like that, expect to receive the same.

I leave you with a quote brother, “There is a shortage of Vocations to the Priesthood, but no shortage of Vocations to the Pappacy.”
