On today’s program we’ll take a step into the lives of St. Francis and St. Clare with Br. Bill Short from the Franciscan School of Theology/Graduate Theological Union. We’ll learn how to have productive pro-life dialogue with Trent Horn, the Respect Life Coordinator of the Diocese of Phoenix. Rector and pastor Fr. Vince Mesi will tell us about an interfaith prayer event, in the Spirit of St. Francis, that will take place at St. Mary’s Basilica. Finally we’ll hear the fourth in Bishop Thomas J. Olmsted’s series on the Third Edition of the Roman Missal, which goes into effect on Sunday, Nov. 27, the first day of Advent.

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.

We’d love to hear from you. Send us your feedback at radio@diocesephoenix.org.
