January 12, 2022:  We are excited to announce that the migration of our video streaming services to Vimeo is complete.  In addition to streaming live here on our website, the TV Mass is also live streamed on our Facebook pages https://www.facebook.com/OfficeRadioTV and https://www.facebook.com/WJMJRadio and our YouTube Channel Office of Radio & Television - TV Mass https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCXO7--BH0GArJRh965GmanA.

The volume of TV Mass prayer intention requests continues to remain high and the television Mass prayer and intention schedule fills up quickly; especially Sundays and Holidays.  So please remember that it may be three months or more before you see your prayer request on the TV Mass, unless you have requested a specific (special) date AND it is available!  Under normal circumstances, special date requests must be submitted at least TWO months in advance.  Please note, for your security and to prevent fraud, we deposit donations on the same day that they are received.  Please continue to use our mail-in or online resources to request your prayer intentions, and remember to indicate whether the person you are requesting a prayer for is LIVING or DECEASED in all correspondence.  You can find complete information on our Prayers and Donations page. 

We thank you for your continued patience and understanding.

February 11, 2021:  Pope Francis' Message for the 24th World Day of the Sick

January 1, 2021:  Pope Francis' Message for the 54th World Day of Peace


March 11, 2020 - Pope Francis offers the following prayer to the Virgin Mary for her protection during the Covid-19 Coronavirus pandemic.
O Mary, you shine continuously on our journey as a sign of salvation and hope.

We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick.

At the foot of the Cross you participated in Jesus’ pain, with steadfast faith.

You, Salvation of the Roman People, know what we need.

We are certain that you will provide, so that, as you did at Cana of Galilee, joy and feasting might return after this moment of trial.

Help us, Mother of Divine Love, to conform ourselves to the Father’s will and to do what Jesus tells us:

He who took our sufferings upon Himself, and bore our sorrows to bring us, through the Cross, to the joy of the Resurrection. Amen.

We seek refuge under your protection, O Holy Mother of God.

Do not despise our pleas – we who are put to the test – and deliver us from every danger, O glorious and blessed Virgin. Amen.
