EWTN Press Release: Annual National Catholic Prayer Breakfast


Exclusive: EWTN To Air 14th Annual National Catholic Prayer Breakfast

Live Event to Feature Kansas Archbishop Joseph Naumann


Irondale, AL (EWTN) – Thousands of Catholic leaders will descend upon Washington, D.C. Thursday, May 24 to attend the 14th Annual National Catholic Prayer Breakfast, and – as always – EWTN Global Catholic Network will be the only Network in the room, providing wall to wall coverage and expert commentary. (Find EWTN at www.ewtn.com/channelfinder.)

“EWTN News Nightly” Anchor Lauren Ashburn will host the two-hour event live from the Marriott Marquis in Washington, D.C. beginning at 7 a.m. ET. According to organizers, the events will include a keynote address by Kansas Archbishop Joseph F. Naumann, as well as remarks from a “special guest.”

“EWTN has been proud to collaborate with the National Catholic Prayer Breakfast for many years in bringing the event to an audience well beyond Washington, D.C.,” said EWTN Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Michael P. Warsaw. “This is an important occasion each year for Catholics to come together to invoke God’s blessing upon our country, our citizens, and our political leaders. The prayer breakfast and the events surrounding it are a reminder to the world that we need God to navigate safely through these increasingly contentious and perilous times.”

The keynote speech by Archbishop Naumann, chair of the Kansas Catholic Conference and chair-elect of the U.S. Bishops’ Pro-Life Committee, is sure to be a newsmaker.

The courageous and outspoken Archbishop “has spearheaded efforts to restrict abortion in Kansas, and is well-known for challenging Catholic politicians espousing pro-choice positions,” according to Catholic News Agency (CNA).

Last year, CNA continues, Archbishop Naumann cut ties with the Girl Scouts, saying that the organization was “no longer a compatible partner in helping us form young women with the virtues and values of the Gospel.” Parishes are instead encouraged to start troops of American Heritage Girls, an alternative scouting organization.

The National Catholic Prayer Breakfast, which began in 2004, is nonpartisan and people of all faiths are invited to attend. Past keynote speakers include Cardinal Robert Sarah and Texas Gov. Greg Abbott.

EWTN Global Catholic Network, in its 37th year, is the largest religious media network in the world. EWTN’s 11 TV channels are broadcast in multiple languages 24 hours a day, seven days a week to over 275 million television households in more than 145 countries and territories. EWTN platforms also include radio services transmitted through SIRIUS/XM, iHeart Radio, and over 500 domestic and international AM & FM radio affiliates; a worldwide shortwave radio service; the largest Catholic website in the U.S.; electronic and print news services, including Catholic News Agency, “The National Catholic Register” newspaper, and several global news wire services; as well as EWTN Publishing, its book publishing division.

The youth have spoken...dear God help us all

What hell will Pope Francis unleash on us now that he's heard from our  the youth? ("our youth" would be Catholic, but this Vatican initiated conference didn't ask only its Catholic youth...oh no! The Church wants protest, pagan and atheist youth to tell the Church how it should proceed.) By all means, let the non-Catholics dictate what the Church should do. 😕  

What did the youth complain about say they needed from Christ's Holy Catholic Church? 

*less moralism (those pesky Ten Commandments just won't go away! We want our sex, birth control and gay marriage supported by the Church, etc.) 

*women's equality (we know what this means, we want women priests!) 

*more accompaniment (when we hear this, its 99% of the time used to "accompany" someone IN their sin, not out of it-that would hurt their feelings-see below) 

*more welcoming & merciful Church (don't hurt anyone's feelings by telling them their sins will lead them to eternal damnation)


Quote: VATICAN CITY (AP) — Young Catholics told the Vatican on Saturday they want a more transparent and authentic church, where women play a greater leadership role and where obeying "unreachable" moral standards isn't the price of admission.
In a fascinating final document from a week long Vatican-initiated conference, 300 young people from around the world joined by 15,000 young people online gave the older men who run the 1.2-billion strong church a piece of their collective mind.
They urged Pope Francis and the bishops who will gather at the Vatican in the fall to back their recommendations that church leaders must address the unequal roles of women in the church and how technology is used and abused. They warned that "excessive moralism" is driving faithful away and that out-of-touch church bureaucrats need to accompany their flock with humility and transparency.
"We, the young church, ask that our leaders speak in practical terms about subjects such as homosexuality and gender issues, about which young people are already freely discussing," they said.
Among the participants, however, there was no consensus on hot-button issues such as church teaching on contraception, homosexuality, abortion or cohabitation. 
The document said some young people want the church to change its teaching...[clipped] 
This isn't news to anyone. We see it among the adults in and outside the Church so no one should be surprised our youth are spouting the same nonsense. 

Yet all hope is not lost! There are some young people (thanks be to God!) who accept all the Church teaches and simply want the Church to proclaim Her teachings "more forcefully" and to "better explain" the teachings!
... or better explain it; others accept the teachings and want the church to proclaim them more forcefully.
But overall, the young people concluded, the church often comes off as too severe and its "excessive moralism" often sends the faithful looking elsewhere for peace and spiritual fulfillment.[clipped]
  
For the life of me, I can't believe anyone today thinks the Church is "too severe" in this day and age. Would love to send these people back a few centuries - (or even decades for that matter!) for a comparison of the Church then to now! 😇



"The young people also made it clear that they love their technology and the church must get hip to that or lose relevance." [clipped]
Telling the post Vatican II Church it "must get hip" is mind blowing. 


We've got clown Masses, liturgical dancers bouncing around, female altar servers, parades of "Eucharistic ministers"(let's face it, they really aren't "extraordinary" at this point), rock-n-roll Masses, gay pride Masses and assorted pagan's mixing it up at our Masses since Vatican II. 

What these youth want is Protestantism, not Catholicism. 

God help our youth, I weep for them. 


In Christ, 


Julie @ Connecticut Catholic Corner

EWTN Press Release: Santa Rosa de Lima mini-series wins award

EWTN’s ‘Santa Rosa de Lima’ Mini-Series
Wins ACE’s “Cultural Program of the Year” Award


Irondale, AL (EWTN) –  The Association of Latin Entertainment Critics in New York recently awarded EWTN Español’s original Spanish language mini-series “Santa Rosa de Lima” its prestigious “Cultural Program of the Year” award for 2018.  

The mini-series also won three other significant awards: Best Actress:  Milagros Lopez Arias ("Santa Rosa de Lima"); Best Supporting Actor Luis Galli ("Dr. Juan del Castillo"); and Best Supporting Actress Ana Maria Estrada ("María de Uzátegui y Doña Juana").

“EWTN is honored to have won this award for one of our many Spanish-language productions,” said EWTN Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Michael P. Warsaw. “From the beginning, EWTN Foundress Mother Angelica realized the importance of reaching out to people, not just in their own language, but with content that truly reflects the culture of people we seek to serve. That’s why EWTN offers Spanish speaking viewers both Spanish language television networks (EWTN Español/ and El Canal Católica), and a Spanish language radio network (EWTN Radio Católica Mundial), which operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week, providing top quality Catholic programming that educates, inspires, and entertains.” (Find EWTN at www.ewtn.com/channelfinder.)

John Elson, Director of Acquisitions and CoProductions, was gratified by the award. “This prestigious ACE award shows that quality Catholic television content can be accepted and even celebrated in the secular entertainment world,” he said. “We celebrate this award with all of the members of our EWTN Family whose spiritual and financial support make our original programming possible.”


EWTN Global Catholic Network, in its 37th year, is the largest religious media network in the world.
