Karen Edmisten on This is the Day

On Friday, May 11, 2012, author Karen Edmisten will be featured on the CatholicTV Network’s nationally broadcasted live talk show; This is the Day, to discuss her book, After Miscarriage: A Catholic Woman's Companion to Healing and Hope.

After Miscarriage: A Catholic Woman's Companion to Healing and Hope is a book about grief, healing, and hope after miscarriage. Not afraid to examine the raw emotions that accompany such an experience, the author tells women that they are not alone in reacting strongly, even frighteningly, to their loss and reassures them that hope and healing will come. Having experienced multiple miscarriages herself, Karen shares excerpts from her personal journals, as well as other women's stories, rich quotes about grieving and the healing process, and practical advice. A helpful resource section includes a wide variety of information from both Catholic and secular sources.

Frequent CatholicTV guest Lisa M. Hendey, founder of CatholicMom.com and author of A Book of Saints for Catholic Moms, said,
For every soul who has felt the loss of life through miscarriage or the absence of hope that accompanies infertility, After Miscarriage by Karen Edmisten offers a wellspring of grace. Filled with both the voices of those who have experienced this sacrificial love and helpful resources full of practical insights, Karen's book will be a gift of compassion and healing for many.
Karen is also the author of The Rosary: Keeping Company with Jesus and Mary, and Through the Year with Mary: 356 Reflections, both published by Servant Books. A popular blogger and a regular guest on Relevant Radio, she is also a contributor to Atheist to Catholic: Stories of Conversion.

CatholicTV wins 'Religious Station of the Year'

It was announced this week that the Gabriel Award for “Religious Television Station of the Year” will be awarded to two nationally recognized Catholic television networks by the Catholic Academy for Communications Arts Professionals (CACAP). The CatholicTV® Network will receive the honor this year as “Religious Television Station of the Year” alongside the Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN). The CatholicTV Network was honored as the “Religious Television Station of the Year” in 2010 as well.

The Gabriel Awards are designed to honor works of excellence in film, network and cable television and radio programs. These include, feature films and documentaries, entertainment and news programming, public service announcements, and stations which serve audiences through the positive, creative treatment of concerns to humankind. Categories for TV and radio include both English and Spanish language programs.

President of the CatholicTV Network, Father Robert Reed said of the award, “It is a tremendous thrill for us to be given this prestigious Gabriel Award, not for a specific program, but rather for our entire network. I hold in deep esteem our team members and on-air personalities as well as the entire CatholicTV family of viewers who have sustained the network for some 57 years. This Gabriel Award is a true honor for Cardinal Seán O’Malley and the Archdiocese of Boston as it indicates that the Academy looks upon both nationally broadcast networks as providing complimentary service to the Church in the United States.

When asked about the award, General Manager Jay Fadden said, “This impressive award not only reflects the professional and hard work of our entire staff and the leadership of Cardinal Seán, but is recognition of the faith of the many loyal viewers who have supported CatholicTV for so many years.”

Persecution of Christians

On today's episode of This is the Day, Mark Riedemann and Edward Clancy came on to talk about the very serious problem of religious persecution against Christians (especially Christians in the Middle East).

The problem of religious persecution is one that is frequently ignored by those of us who are blessed with religious freedom. We are often unaware of the degree to which Christians are persecuted throughout the world. According to Mark, over 70% of the acts of religious persecution around the world are against Christians.


Edward Clancy is the Director of Outreach and Evangelization for Aid to the Church in Need, based in Brooklyn, NY. Mark Riedemann is the host of Where God Weeps, a series which places the suffering Church in focus and a project of Aid to the Church in Need. You can watch Where God Weeps on CatholicTV throughout the week.
