New Show: Heart to Heart with Mother Miriam

Mother Miriam of the Lamb of GodImmaculate Heart Radio launched it’s newest show today, Heart to Heart with Mother Miriam heard weekdays from 12:00 noon to 1:00 p.m. Pacific. Mother Miriam of the Lamb of God hosts the show which offers listeners encouragement, insight, and solutions to life’s struggles and challenges.

“Mother has been a featured guest on The Phil Sandoval Show each week, and I’m very happy that she will now be hosting a daily show for us,” said Doug Sherman, founder and president of Immaculate Heart Radio.  “She is an ‘old friend’ and over the years I’ve been privileged to see her wisdom and kindness touch hearts.”

Born and raised in a Jewish home, Rosalind Moss (now Mother Miriam of the Lamb of God, O.S.B.) embraced Jesus as the Messiah of the Jewish people in her adult years. Her conversion took her from a successful business career to full-time Evangelical Protestant ministry and earning a Master’s degree from Talbot Theological Seminary. A series of events in the summer of 1990 set her on a compelling course to the Catholic Church, which she entered the Easter of 1995.

After spending many years as a staff apologist for St. Joseph Radio and Catholic Answers, in 2008 she entered the consecrated life, and started the religious community Daughters of Mary, Mother of Israel’s Hope. The community is currently located in Tulsa, OK and was decreed a Public Association of the Faithful on September 8, 2011, the Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

The Daughters of Mary, Mother of Israel’s Hope is a contemplative-active community of religious sisters, believing the family to be the Lord’s primary instrument to build His Kingdom on earth. Therefore their primary mission is to be “handmaids of the family” and “messengers of hope” through the streets of Tulsa and beyond.

Heart to Heart with Mother Miriam is part of Immaculate Heart Radio’s line up of shows that focus on inspirational talk, representing the truth of the Gospel in a compelling interactive format.

Show Your Support for Archbishop Cordileone

archbishop cordileoneIn recent months, San Francisco’s Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone has faced attacks from critics who oppose his efforts to uphold Catholic moral teaching in San Francisco’s Catholic schools.

Recently, a group took out a full-page ad in the San Francisco Chronicle calling for Pope Francis to remove the archbishop. The petitioners describe themselves as “Catholic leaders,” but there are many in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond who support Archbishop Cordileone and his effort to keep Catholic schools authentically Catholic.

Archbishop Cordileone’s critics do not speak for all Catholics. If you support Archbishop Cordileone, we want to help you make your voice heard. Here are some things you can do to show your support for Archbishop Cordileone and the Catholic beliefs he is working to uphold:

  • Sign the San Francisco Catholics statement of support – A group of Catholics in San Francisco have a web site with a statement expressing their support for Archbishop Cordileone and their desire for Catholic schools to uphold the values and teachings of the Catholic faith. You can sign the statement to add your voice of support.
  • Attend the “Archbishop Cordileone Support Day Family Picnic” –  The picnic will take place Saturday, May 16th at 11:00AM, Sue Bierman Park in San Francisco. Activities include a puppet show, bounce house, and mariachi band. Show your support for the archbishop and have a great day of family fun!
  • Take the SFGate poll – SFGate‘s weekly poll asks “Should Pope Francis remove Archbishop Cordileone from the San Francisco archdiocese?” Let your voice be heard that the archbishop is upholding the values of the Catholic Church.
