This past weekend, Pope Francis travelled to the Holy Land, where he walked the steps of Jesus, prayed with Muslims and Jews for peace, and met with the Archbishop of Constantinople, Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew.
The Archdiocese of Boston has released a joint letter from Metropolitan Methodios and Cardinal Seán on the upcoming meeting between Pope Francis and Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew during Pope Francis's visit to the Holy Land.
Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
Shannon Muldoon, our PR coordinator, had the opportunity to be present at the red carpet premiere of Mom's Night Out starring Sarah Drew, Sean Astin and Patricia Heaton, and was able to speak to members of the cast about their work in the film.
Here's Shannon's recap:
In January I had the privilege to travel to Ghana as part of a Catholic Relief Services (CRS) sponsored trip for media. There were five radio personalities and administration people and I was there for TV. Ghana is an amazing country and I am grateful to CRS for the opportunity.
Our time in Rome has ended and we’re back on US time already. Looking back on our time is pretty surreal. From the moment we landed in Rome, you could feel the energy of the city, carried over from Easter celebrations straight through the canonizations of Saints John Paul II and John XXIII.
We are so pleased to be partnering with RD Sahl, KJ Johnson and Matt Younis (Matt and KJ are Boston University students) who are in Rome for the Canonizations of Blessed John XXIII and Blessed John Paul II. RD, KJ and Matt will be our on the ground crew at the Vatican and we are excited to bring you their content!
Before you get worried, let me just say that, no, I'm not suggesting we imitate Judas' behavior. Even though Judas' betrayal of Jesus played an essential role in the fulfillment of Scripture, Jesus is pretty clear in the Gospel reading at today's Mass that "it would be better for that man if he had never been born."
We gather for the annual oil change and tune up. The oils are the tools we use in the ministry we share, but just as important is our own tune up as we gather as presbyterate to recommit ourselves to follow Christ and to shepherd His people.
Here at the CatholicTV Network we know a lot about video. About 40% of our on-air programming is produced right here in our Watertown, Massachusetts based studios. Our intent is for the programs to be seen on TV, but today’s viewers are using handheld devices to watch what they want to watch, when they want to watch it.
