Father Romanus Cessario, Senior Editor of Magnificat, will appear in a television interview on CatholicTV on Friday, March 13th.
Magnificat is a monthly spiritual guide about the same size as a TV guide. It contains prayers for both morning and evening, drawn from the Liturgy of the Hours. Magnificat also contains the official texts of the daily Mass, meditations written by the renowned Fathers of the Church, and a variety of spiritual writings, and essays on the lives of the saints of today and the past.
Magnificat has grown considerably in popularity and each edition of the Magnificat has a circulation size of 230,000 which is larger than Investor’s Business Daily, The Boston Herald, and The Los Angeles Daily News’ daily circulation (src: nyjobsource.com).
Father Romanus Cessario is the Senior Editor of the English version of Magnificat. He is a Dominican priest and also on the faculty at St. John’s Seminary in Brighton, MA. On the CatholicTV talk show “This is the Day”, Father Cessario will talk about Magnificat and his new book The Seven Last Words of Jesus.
The book is based on his preaching at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in NYC. The book addresses many everyday concerns: marriage, liturgy, suffering, vocations, etc. The Seven Last Words of Jesus can also be used for adult catechetical instruction and RCIA.
