Lives are changed...
I wasn’t really a radio listener; but then I tuned in Armor of God radio! I got hooked and was amazed at how much I could learn in just 15 minutes driving to and from work each day!
I have been a great fan and listener of Catholic radio, EWTN, for a long time. It is so nice to have Armor of God radio in our area. I’m excited to learn that we will have a new website available to us! Please support Armor of God with your talent and treasure.
Finally, a Catholic radio station in Central TX! My family and I are ecstatic about our new station; it’s enlightened us in all aspects of our Catholic faith. 106.9 FM has been our main source of reference with all matters concerning the faith (with the exception of the Catechism and the Bible) and our main reference resource especially while on the move! Thank God Almighty!
Catholic radio is an invaluable source to the New Evangelization. It is great to listen to Mass, prayers and quality faith programming. I typically start and end my day listening and learning.
I have been a listener to Catholic radio for only 2 months. In that short time, I have been deeply touched, greatly encouraged and fully challenged to live my Catholic faith. I feel honored to now support this awesome ministry.

Advent Season - Preparing for the coming of Christ!
Advent begins December 1 until Christmas Day
We Christians hold a great festival during the winter solstice, the shortest days of the year. We call this festival “Christmas,” meaning the “feast of Christ.” It takes several weeks to prepare and several weeks to celebrate.
The weeks of preparation are called Advent — the season of growing darkness before the solstice. The weeks of celebration are called Christmas — the season of growing light after the solstice. Perhaps is comes to something basic: We are children of light.
While the culture has hijacked our holiday, starting it before Halloween and ending it the week before Christmas Day, the symbols of the season are our property, not advertisers’ gimmicks. So it’s important that we keep Advent and Christmas in the church and at home according to our tradition.
And they’re worth keeping. We need Advent. Without it we stop being what we are: a people who are waiting. We need the gospel’s terrifying announcement of the end of time. We need the prophet’s consolations and threats. We learn who we are in the uneasy raving of John the Baptist and in the gentle strength of Holy Mary.
And we need Christmas. We need a festival that runs beyond a single day, beyond a single week. We need time to tell about the journey of the Magi, about the embrace of old Simeon and Anna, about the babbling of water made wine and the leaping Jordan and that glorious voice thundering what we yearn to hear: You are my beloved child!
