Cardinal Rainer Maria Woelki of Cologne, Germany, on Aug. 30 emphasized the importance of the Catholic television network EWTN.TV when he celebrated holy Mass with the station’s staff and blessed the newly equipped studio in Cologne.
Woelki emphasized the far-reaching importance of EWTN, not only for those who work there but also for the viewers whose faith is strengthened by the broadcasts.
“Time and again, I hear how grateful people are for the daily broadcasts of holy Mass,” Woelki said, according to CNA Deutsch, CNA’s German-language news partner. EWTN is the parent company of CNA.
The cardinal’s homily, which commemorated St. Heribert, archbishop of Cologne from 999 to 1021, focused on the vision of a united, peaceful, and free Europe.
