EWTN’s Father Mitch Pacwa talks about his annual Thanksgiving hunting trip; we tell the amazing stories of two Native American Catholics; a Catholic couple donates thousands of turkeys for the holidays; and much more.

    Ep. 82: Nigeria’s Forgotten Martyrs

    Ep. 82: Nigeria’s Forgotten Martyrs

    The persecution of Christians is by no means confined to the Middle East. In Africa’s most populous nation, Nigeria, to be a Christian means to suffer regular threats of violence, kidnapping, torture, and even death. In this episode, we bring you the voices of Nigerian Catholics who want the world to know— and to care— about the brutal persecution they face every day.

    This is the last in a three-episode series on Christian persecution.

Lovethesaints ,

Well constructed podcast

Newsroom does a great job of conveying stories that might not get air time in other formats. I really appreciate how nuanced and thorough the stories are. This podcast fills a need in Catholic news programming today. Thank you.

MARVELous!

I always love this podcast, but Episode 68, about the birth of the Marvel comic about the life of John Paul II, was exceptional! More like this please!
