A series of Lenten radio retreats is now available in English and Spanish.
The series includes six half-hour English-language and six Spanish-language editions of the retreats -- one for each Sunday of Lent. The programs were produced for the U.S. bishops' Catholic Communication Campaign by Franciscan Radio, a ministry of the Franciscans and St. Anthony Messenger Press.
Each radio retreat program features a bishop as retreat guide and homilist. The homily is followed by a song for meditation and a question-and-answer segment with the bishop concerning the themes of his homily.
The programs have been offered to Catholic dioceses and radio outlets throughout the United States on a non-exclusive basis.
