On today’s program we learn about the simple but profound theology of St. Thérèse of Lisieux, the little flower and why she was named doctor of the Church. International Catholic composer Tom Booth joins us in studio with his guitar he’s written many of the favorite songs that we sing every Sunday. Then we’re joined by’s Erik Twist and Anthony DiStephano, who will tell us about best-selling author Walker Percy, a Catholic who is featured in a documentary about his life and work. We’ll tell you where and when you can see it and discuss it. And in his weekly message, Bishop Thomas J. Olmsted presents part 2 of his weekly series on the Third Edition of the Roman Missal.

The Bishop’s Hour is a program produced by and for the Roman Catholic Diocese of Phoenix, presenting Church news and theological reflections, discussing contemporary issues facing today’s Catholics in Arizona, and featuring a weekly message from Bishop Thomas J. Olmsted. It airs each Monday at 10 a.m. on 1310 AM Immaculate Heart Radio in Phoenix. Encore presentations can be heard each Thursday at 9 p.m.

The Bishop’s Hour is brought to you in part by our good friends at the non-profit Catholic Cemeteries and Mortuaries of the Diocese of Phoenix. Music for The Bishop’s Hour courtesy of Carrick Ministries.
