Does this question ever pop up in your head? Well, this question usually always surface especially when the radio is switched on in the car. And there your mind wonders as the love song blaze on the radio and you wonder, what if the love song was actually a declaration of love from God. What if God spoke to you through the radio? What if God was the radio deejay, spinning songs of various genres, but all with the same theme of Love? How will you react if it truly happens?
Well, back to reality. We are aware with the fact that God does speak to us in various ways, however, being human, we always wanted concrete truth or evidence that it really happens. As with various encounters and testimonials, it is mainly through faith that we believe in those sharing by people all around us. If we share these stories with people outside the faith, they will surely doubt the truth and the believes. Being Catholic, our views and beliefs are often contradicting with people of other Christian denominations and often times, we admit the faith struggles that we faced when being questioned by our non-Catholics counterparts. We try means and ways to deliver our side of the story to them in the best possible understandable way, and hence, a Catholic radio channel would be a good form of communication.
Honestly, a radio would seemed like a dull idea, especially with all the latest communication device the current world has to offer. But then, if we take a step back and go back to basics, a radio is one of the basics communication tool to get any news across the world. And thus, a Catholic radio could be our tool of evangelization to the rest of the world. We can have live-masses on the radio, where people all around the world may indirectly attend mass from any parts of the world, especially masses celebrated by our Holy Father, the Pope. Imagine people all over the world, able to connect and hear the words of our Holy Father via the radio. It will surely be a meaningful experience.
And just like Dr. Phil, we could also have our own segments or shows to answer any faith related questions. Pretty sure that this shows will gain popularity among non-Catholics as this would be their chance to know or rather understand what and who Catholics are. And having this aired on the radio will be an added advantage to allow people to just listen, and not focused on other elements as compared to watching a talk show on the television. Words will come alive if we listen intently with our heart and not let the eyes wonders with distractions.
And of course, what will the radio be without songs! I believe that any genres of songs may be played on the Catholic radio, and not necessarily praise and worship songs. The reason being that, if we have faith in God, even the smallest possible amount of faith, God will speak to us through the songs. God works mysteriously, if only we believe!…
