On today’s program we’ll talk about purgatory with Fr. William Kosco, pastor of St. Henry Parish in Buckeye. Then we’ll talk to Fr. Tom Enneking, OSC, the prior provincial of the United States Province of the Crosier Fathers and Brothers, about this 800-year-old order. Janet LaPlante, former president of the Phoenix Diocesan Council of Catholic Women, joins us to talk about the many names of Mary. Finally we’ll hear from Bishop Thomas J. Olmsted as he continues his reflections on the new 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.
