The German branch of the international Catholic charitable organization “Aid to the Church in Need” (ACN) will start airing its own TV programs aimed at raising awareness about persecuted Christians around the world.
The magazine “Weitblick – die Welt von innen,” or “Farsightedness – the World from inside,” will be aired starting mid-July by the several Christian TV stations, including the German language branch of EWTN, as well as by “RheinMain TV”, a secular TV station in the Frankfurt region.
The 30-minute magazine will be broadcast every two weeks, alternately with another Christian program, also produced by ACN Germany.
According to Michael Ragg, spokesman for the charity, the magazine aims at mobilising aid to the Church in countries where Christians are being persecuted, oppressed or in need.
The first editions of “Weitblick” will be dedicated to the situation of the Catholic Church in Russia, Cuba, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Sudan.
