Just a few updates on some of the latest happenings from “home” – that is, from our old home in Irondale, Alabama…As mentioned on our show earlier last week, EWTN’s lawsuit against the Obama Administration’s HHS Mandate was rejected by a district court in Mobile, AL.  It will now be appealed to the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta.  The ruling is especially disturbing because most of the lawsuits challenging the mandate have found support in the courts.  Please keep EWTN in your prayers, and all organizations who are battling the unjust HHS Mandate.  We will continue to place all of these court cases in the hands of God and say our favorite prayer:  Jesus, I surrender this to You, take care of everything!

Even while EWTN had some bad news last week, there are also some things to celebrate.  LastThursday Mike Warsaw announced that EWTN will be acquiring the Catholic News Agency and ACI Prensa Group (the largest Spanish-language Catholic news organization in the world).  This is exciting news, and you can read more about what it means here.

Last, but not least, last month Mike Warsaw was invited to give the undergraduate commencement address at Franciscan University in Steubenville, Ohio.  If you haven’t already listened to it, here’s the video:

Old friends

Sr. Grace Marie and Sr. Mary Peter were at the Catholic Marketing Network in Dallas at the end of August. They ran into a lot of our EWTN friends there, and Sr. Grace Marie was able to sit down with Doug Keck for a few minutes to chat about our foundation here in San Antonio.  Her interview starts around 21 minutes into the show.
