Faith, a beacon of light

It has been devastating for so many Catholics in the United States and all over the globe to lose physical access to the sacraments and their parish communities, especially during the season of Lent and the upcoming celebrations of Holy Week and Easter.

As you’re making your way through this period of isolation and sacrifice, you are not alone. It is our great honor at Relevant Radio® to accompany you through these difficult times. We’re working to keep you connected to your Catholic family every day via the airwaves and online channels. Here are a few of the ways we’re connecting Catholics to the sacraments and devotions that bring us closer to Christ:

Many thousands listeners have tuned in to pray with us over the past weeks, and we hope you will join us. We’ve heard from hundreds of those listeners who have expressed their deep gratitude for accompanying them through these trying times. Here are just a few of their messages*:

Thank you Father Rocky for bringing mass to those who cannot physical attend at this time.  Thanks for reminding us to focus on faith and not fear, that is very reassuring in these stressful and unusual times with Covid-19 on everyone’s minds. – Rebecca

Thank you so much for the Masses. It’s comforting to know that you will be praying for us. I am a first responder and a father of four. I’m trying not to be afraid. I’ll be praying for everyone at Relevant Radio as well. – Kevin

I want you all to know that I honestly do not know what I would do without Relevant Radio in my life. The daily Mass now offered during this time of Covid-19 anchors me in Faith instead of fear. The Chaplet of Divine Mercy and Family Rosary Across America keeps me prayerful, hopeful and socially connected during these mostly isolated times. I am growing spiritually by leaps and bounds. I am so very thankful for you all. May God bless Relevant Radio and all of you. – Nancy

family watches MassWe are SO grateful for daily Mass. To see and hear Fr. Rocky in the Chapel of the Nativity is a great blessing. Looking forward to the return of public Mass. I don’t think I will ever again take Mass or Sacramental Communion for granted. – Christine, WI

Thank you! What a beautiful and great light in the midst of so much darkness. God bless each of you at Relevant Radio that have made this possible. To lose Mass when it is clearly what we all need so badly right now would be horrible. Thank you for all you do for us. – Theresa

Please remember that you are never alone. Relevant Radio is working to be your beacon of light, guiding you toward Christ’s hope and peace. We are praying unceasingly for you, for an end to the pandemic, and the safety and wellbeing of everyone you hold dear. When you start to give in to anxiety or fear, focus on your Faith. Come pray with us every day—we’re here for you.
