Bringing Good News! – Fr. Rocky’s Monthly Update

As the Month of Mary comes to a close and I look back at everything that has happened, I see our Blessed Mother’s hand in all of it. From the incredible success of our May Pledge Drive to churches beginning to reopen in parts of the country, it’s easy to see that she has been working behind the scenes.

A Memorable Month!

The generosity of our Relevant Radio® listeners and supporters never ceases to amaze me. Despite everything going on in the world, our listeners are unbelievably generous. Relevant Radio received donations from all fifty states and fourteen foreign countries – wow!

St Joseph and JesusThis month we consecrated Relevant Radio and our listeners to St. Joseph to honor his powerful intercession for the network. We also celebrated a special Mother’s Day Mass for all mothers and held a beautiful May Crowning on the feast of Our Lady of Fatima to honor our heavenly Mother. A Requiem Mass was offered for all those who have died during the pandemic and whose loved ones missed the opportunity to say goodbye and attend their funeral. Our Memorial Day Mass was offered for all the men and women who gave their lives for our country, and we prayed a Patriotic Rosary for all 50 states.

Close out the Month of May with Mary!

Tomorrow, Saturday, May 30, our Holy Father Pope Francis will be joining a number of Marian sanctuaries around the globe to pray the Rosary, asking the Virgin Mary for help amidst the pandemic. Relevant Radio will be broadcasting this event live beginning at 10:30am CT on Saturday morning. Tune in to your local station, at, or on the Relevant Radio app.

We have just a few days left in our Marian Pentecost Novena, and this Sunday, May 31, we will celebrate Pentecost Mass at Noon CT. We are asking Mary and the Holy Spirit to reopen all the churches so that everyone can attend Mass, receive grace from the sacrament of Confession, and adore our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament.

Rev. Francis J. Hoffman, "Fr. Rocky" is the Executive Director/CEO of Relevant Radio and a priest of Opus Dei.
