CatholicTV has just begun to air a new series called "Where God Weeps" as a part of the new fall season. This series is new to CatholicTV and shows the plights and struggles of suffering Catholics who are victims of political, financial, and social suffering. The series follows the work of an organization called Aid to the Church in Need. Aid to the Church in Need works with the impoverished in 145 countries around the globe. "Where God Weeps" shows footage of missionary work in Haiti, Kenya, the U.S., Asia, Lebanon, and many other places as well.
“Where God Weeps” aims to inform and draws on experts, including bishops, priests, missionaries, and lay people, who testify to the suffering Church. The aim of the show is to awaken the awareness of Catholic viewers to the situation of the Church in need worldwide.
“Where God Weeps” has already aired around the globe including Australia.
What is now Aid to the Church in Need was founded by Dutch Catholic priest Father Werenfried van Straaten at Christmas 1947 to aid German expellees and refugees fled from or expelled from Eastern Europe in the wake of the Second World War. Many of them were Catholic. As an international Catholic charity under the guidance of the Holy Father, Aid to the Church in Need’s mission is to help suffering and persecuted faithful worldwide.
“Where God Weeps” now airs at CatholicTV.com and on CatholicTV each week at the following times Eastern Standard:
Monday 3:30AM, 8:30 PM; Thursday 2:30 PM; and Saturday 6:00 AM
