Catholic Forum

Each Saturday, Catholic Forum brings you a brief reflection, the proclamation of the Sunday Gospel by a Deacon or Priest of the Catholic Diocese of Wilmington, a musical selection, an interview of 15-20 minutes in length, and on most shows, an episode of Modern Day Witness, by Father Rich Jasper. Catholic Forum is the longest-running Catholic talk show on radio, having begun in 1939 on a radio station in Wilmington, Delaware. It is now heard every Saturday morning at 11:00 on Relevant Radio 640 and is heard in the Philadelphia and South Jersey area as well as throughout the State of Delaware and Maryland's Eastern Shore. As soon as it finishes airing on the radio, a new program podcast debuts at 2:00 p.m.. ET each Saturday afternoon. Catholic Forum is a production of the Catholic Diocese of Wilmington.

On this episode of Catholic Forum, after a brief introduction, the Holy Gospel for the Second Sunday of Advent, and a song from the Catholic Treasures CD, Msgr. Steven P. Hurley, Vicar General and Moderator of the Curia for the Diocese of Wilmington, and Pastor of St. Thomas the Apostle Parish in Wilmington, calls in from Rome where he, Bishop Francis Malooly, and Bishops from U.S. Regions 4 and 5 are having their ad limina visit. 

An “ad limina apostolorum” visit is a papal meeting required for every diocesan bishop in the world to provide an update on the state of one’s diocese.  What is it like to meet with the pope?  We will get a report from “the threshold of the apostles,” from Msgr. Hurley today on Catholic Forum. Also, Father Rich Jasper will tell us about another Modern Day Witness, Father Walter Ciszek, S.J.
