According to the latest ratings, the Sunday Mass has become the most watched program on a television station in San Cugat in the Spanish province of Catalonia, with an average of 65,000 viewers each weekend.
The Mass has been aired on Channel 2 since 1982, thanks to an agreement with the region’s bishops. More than 1,000 broadcasts of the Mass have been carried out over the years.
Statistics indicated that some 65,000 tune in to the Mass each week, although the number may actually be higher. Analysts said the high ratings for the station were also due to other religious programs that highlight the beauty of local churches.
