Beginning this Sunday, Mother's Day, May 9th, one-minute weekly spiritual messages from Cardinal Justin Rigali, Archbishop of Philadelphia, will begin airing on KYW News Radio, 1060-AM. The messages will air Sunday evenings and Monday mornings. The uplifting messages are intended for Catholics and non-Catholics alike. The messages will also be carried by Holy Spirit Radio, WISP 1570-AM, Bucks County.

"Most people will hear the Cardinal's messages when they are driving on the road listening to the radio," said Catherine L. Rossi, Director of Communications. "The Cardinal's messages are meant to give people pause and to prompt them to think about God for a minute. This is also a way for Cardinal, who is relatively new to Philadelphia, to speak to many people at once. People tend to feel they know someone whose voice they hear on a regular basis."

The topic for the first spiritual message airing on Mother's Day is Mary - Mothers. Other upcoming topics this summer will include: Find Time to Pray, The Story of God's Love, Graduations - The Presence of God, Come Back to the Church, Fatherhood, Summer Soul - Searching, Love Your Neighbor and All God's Children.

Cardinal Justin Rigali was installed as the new Archbishop of Philadelphia on October 7, 2003 and was elevated to a Cardinal on October 21, 2003. Since becoming Archbishop of Philadelphia, Cardinal Rigali has visited more than 150 parishes, schools, nursing homes, hospitals, religious communities and other places in each of the five counties of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia.
