There’s been a few changes here at Immaculate Heart Radio and we wanted to try to make things clearer for our listeners. As of January 28, 2015, the Right Here, Right Now Show is now hosted by Chris Aubert.
Back in December, Patrick became the host of The Patrick Madrid Show – a three hour morning show that is currently on all Immaculate Heart Radio stations. Patrick’s show airs from 6am to 9am Pacific time – Monday through Friday.
In doing this we have decided to create new Podcasts and archives for all our show. Our Podcast page has our current lineup with link to subscribe to all our show with our favorite Podcatcher software.
We also have changed up our audio archives a bit as well. We now have 2 audio archive pages. One for our network-wide shows, and a page for our local, diocesan produced shows. We still currently carry all of the old Right Here, Right Now with Patrick Madrid shows on our Audio Archive page even though there are no new Podcasts.
The season of Lent starts tomorrow, and is a beautiful time to prepare our hearts to commemorate Christ’s passion, death and resurrection. This time of year, we get many questions about why Catholics do certain things during Lent, and where certain traditions come from. If you have a question about Lent (or anything related to Catholicism), we encourage you to ask your questions on any of our live call-in shows, like Catholic Answers Live ( 3:00-5:00 p.m. Pacific) or The Patrick Madrid Show (6:00-9:00 a.m. Pacific).
But, if you need information right now, the links below from Catholic Answers address some commonly-asked Lenten questions. We hope it will help you grow in understanding and appreciation of our rich Catholic heritage.
How is Easter Sunday determined? Palm Sunday? Ash Wednesday?
Why do Catholics practice fasting and abstinence during Lent?
Why do Catholics eat fish on the Fridays of Lent?
How should senior citizens observe fasting and abstinence during Lent?
Does abstinence from meat include animal byproducts, such as eggs, cheese and milk?
For a quick but comprehensive explanation of Ash Wednesday and Lent, Jimmy Akin wrote two articles for the National Catholic Register last year, which are a great resource:
