Is it Winter or Spring? This morning we have tall grass that needs cutting and it is snowing! This was really a fun snow because it came down but it never amounted to anything. It’s really cold, the sun is shining, and the trees are flowering. Thankfully, the cold probably won’t stay around too much longer. I’m still really enjoying all the Spring flowers and trees.
We are still working on the follow-up of the Spring Radiothon but I wanted to let you all know that we had a very good week. We are so grateful to everyone who assisted with prayers, support, and your generous gifts! We raised approximately $312,000. Thanks to everyone who helped spread the word! Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam!
We will have completed our 21st year on May 1, the Feast of St. Joseph the Worker in the month of Mary. It amazes me that it has been 21 years. I think back to our early days in our studios in Glen Carbon and the tornado that went between our building and the towers, our move to Hampton Avenue and planning for the 1999 Pope John Paul II trip to St. Louis, then a move just a little farther south on Hampton and the growth that has continued as Catholic radio has spread from city to city. So many great people have helped make Catholic radio an effective medium to share the Faith. I look forward to the years to come as we continue to reach out to bring the Faith to more people with even more opportunities.
In this month of May dedicated to the Blessed Mother we are particularly encouraged to pray the rosary every day, Sister Lucia said, “There is no problem, no matter how difficult it is, whether temporal or above all spiritual, in the personal life of each one of us, of our families … that cannot be solved by the Rosary. There is no problem, I tell you, no matter how difficult it is, that we cannot resolve by the prayer of the Holy Rosary.”
May Our Lady wrap you in her mantle,
