Coronavirus, Sacred Music and the Liturgy (May 16)

The power of music to comfort, to teach, and to help us lift our eyes and hearts to God is needed now more than ever. This week on Register Radio, we talk with two members of the Gloriæ Dei Cantores (Latin for “Singers to the Glory of God”), a 40-voice choir from the Church of the Transfiguration in Orleans, Massachusetts. Also, the Thomistic Institute is helping churches to resume the public celebration of the sacraments safely and reverently. We are joined by Dr. Thomas McGovern, co-host of EWTN Radio’s weekly program, “Doctor, Doctor.”

Coronavirus, Catholic Schools (Aug. 1)

The COVID-19 pandemic has re-emerged as a major health crisis in the United States and around the world. How is the Church responding, and what can be done to keep parishioners safe as they worship? We talk with Dr. Timothy Flanigan, a Catholic deacon and infectious disease specialist at Brown University. Also, we’ve had a lot of news this week on Catholic schools, including an important op-ed by several important Church leaders reminding us that Catholic schools are worth saving. We talk with Register contributor Andrea Picciotti-Bayer.
