Thank You, Dan Burke

Dan Burke has been an integral member of the EWTN family since his arrival with the Register in 2011.

A man of considerable gifts, he has served as the president and chief operating officer for the entire EWTN News operation. Before that, Dan served as the executive director of the Register and worked closely with me in bringing the Register into the EWTN family.

Along the way, he found the time to conceptualize, inaugurate and build the Avila Institute for Spiritual Formation, while running the website. It is for the Avila Foundation and the potential for spiritual growth for him, his family and those he serves that Dan will be leaving EWTN at the end of February. And while I am sad to see him depart, I know he will continue to do all he can to serve Christ and the Church for the rest of his life.

Dan is a quintessential truth-seeker. In that pursuit, he has traveled a path in life with many turns: from secular Jew to evangelical Christian, from mainline Protestantism as a seminarian to a home in the Catholic Church. Dan has helped make the Register the Catholic newspaper of record in the United States, the newspaper that most of the U.S bishops, as well as many at the Vatican, read when they want the objectivity, fairness and charity that is lacking in many media outlets today. He leaves the Register in much better shape than it was when he arrived, and for that I am grateful.

Please join me in praying for Dan Burke. I look forward to seeing how the Lord uses his many gifts on the next stage of his journey.

God bless you!

Rekindling Eucharistic Belief

A NOTE FROM THE PUBLISHER: During the pandemic when many have yet to return to worship in our churches, Pope Francis’ reminder at the Eucharistic Congress of the centrality of the Blessed Sacrament in Catholic life is more urgently needed than ever.

EWTN at 40 with Michael Warsaw (Aug. 14)

40 years ago this week, Mother Angelica took a leap of faith and started the Eternal Word Television Network. Today, EWTN is the world’s largest religious media organization, with content in multiple languages on multiple platforms including television, radio, the internet, books and even a newspaper. To celebrate this 40th anniversary we are joined here on Register Radio by Michael Warsaw, EWTN’s CEO and Chairman of the Board.

The King of Horror Movies and Catholic Faith and Culture (Sept. 18)

Culture is key in forming hearts and minds. And Catholics well formed in both their profession and their faith certainly can impact culture for the good. We can all agree we need more of that today. One writer who is always keen on highlighting the intersection of faith and culture is the National Catholic Register’s UK correspondent, K.V. Turley, and he has just released his first novel. He joins us here on Register Radio. And then, we talk with Joan Desmond about the so-called “woke revolution” taking place even in some Catholics schools, in modern medicine, and again in culture.
