“Readings and Reflections,” began on June 19, 2006. The program features priests of the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend and includes the readings from the daily Mass, original reflections prepared by the priests and sacred music. Each program is 15 minutes in duration and airs Monday through Friday at 11:45am, preceding the popular “Doctor Is In” program.

“Our listeners are ready for this,” says Redeemer Radio’s program director Patty Becker. “They have given great support, both financially and prayerfully. They are excited about hearing their own local priests and pastors on the air. “Readings and Reflections” brings the refreshment of scripture readings, with insights on those readings,” Ms. Becker continues. “As a lay Catholic apostolate, this is what we’re all about. Our mission is to transmit the truth and beauty of the Catholic faith, working with the priests and laity of our diocese.”


Redeemer Radio’s lineup includes a variety of programming of interest to a broad audience, including:

•Live talk on current events from the Catholic perspective, including world and national news updates, featuring hosts Al Kresta and Teresa Tomeo.

•Contemporary Catholic music

•Live Q&A about the Catholic faith, featuring the most popular Catholic speakers from around the country.

•Family and personal help for live callers from Catholic psychologists Doctor Ray Guarendi and Doctor Coleen Mast.

•Catholic devotions, including Holy Mass, the rosary and the Divine Mercy Chaplet

•Programming for children, teenagers and young adults


According to Redeemer Radio President Chris Langford, “Catholic radio is very effective because it is available anytime and everywhere: at home, in the car, in the office. It also reaches everyone: rich and poor, young and old, and those who may not be active in any faith.”

Daily, programming is in English during the day from 5 a.m. to 9 p.m. and in Spanish overnight from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.

The mission of Redeemer Radio is to evangelize the Catholic faith through radio in the diocese, under obedience to Bishop John M. D’Arcy.
