Carolina Catholic and the author of Broken Land
For our first December show, we interview Gail Koop, an author and a poet, who has written her autobiography called, Broken Land: God's Message in a Bottle, about her conversion from secularism to Christianity and how her conversion helped her realize the mistakes she made in life including two abortions that she had as a young woman. In this riveting interview, Gail shares how God spoke to her about her past life and led her to share her story so that other young women could avoid the same mistakes that she made.
The show will air the first two weekends of December, Saturdays at 11am and Sundays at 6pm.
The Christmas Novena
The Church has, in its treasury of prayers, the St. Andrew Christmas Novena which is begun on November 30th, the feast of St. Andrew, and runs until Christmas.
This novena is not addressed to St. Andrew but to God Himself asking Him to grant our request in honor of the birth of His Son. The imprimatur for this novena was granted by MICHAEL AUGUSTINE, Archbishop of New York, on February 6, 1897, who wrote that it is piously believed that whoever recites this prayer 15 times a day from the feast of St. Andrew until Christmas will obtain what is asked.
Hail and blessed be the hour and moment
in which the Son of God was born
of the most pure Virgin Mary,
at midnight, in Bethlehem, in piercing cold.
In that hour vouchsafe, O my God!
to hear my prayer and grant my desires,
through the merits of Our Savior Jesus Christ,
and of His Blessed Mother.
Traditional Latin Mass, December 18
The Lower Cape Fear Deanery sponsors a Traditional Latin Mass typically on the fourth Sunday of each month at the Basilica Shrine of Saint Mary at the corner of 5th and Ann Streets in downtown Wilmington. However, this month it will be held on the third Sunday. Mass is offered at 5pm.
Confessions will be held prior to Mass until 4:45.

Two Carolina Catholic shows in November
Our first November show will be with the president and national director of St. Paul Street Evangelization. This organization, founded in May 2012, is a grassroots, non-profit organization dedicated to responding to the mandate of Jesus to preach the Gospel to all nations by taking the Catholic Faith to the streets. Steve Dawson is the president and national director of SPSE, and Peter Lamporte sits on its national Board of Advisers.
Our second November show features the marketing director for Ignatius Press, Anthony Ryan. Ignatius Press is a Catholic publishing house based in San Francisco. Anthony discusses two recent publications from Ignatius: the first book is an in-depth biography of Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati called A Hero for our Times, and the second book, Guadalupe Mysteries: Deciphering the Code, is an almost encyclopedic investigation of the miraculous image of Our Lady of Guadalupe on St. Juan Diego's tilma, with stunning photographic, scientific, mathematical, and medical research that will astound its readers! Both books are perfect for Christmas gifts.
The shows have aired for the month. The St. Paul Street Evangelization show can he heard here while the Ignatius Press show can be listened to here.
