Catholic TV show hosted by Father Cedric Pisegna, C. P. takes on topics especially important in the New Year

HOUSTON, TX (January 6, 2012) - Fr. Cedric Pisegna's nationally and internationally syndicated television show, Live With Passion! has released its upcoming list of programs. Pisegna, a Passionist priest based in the community's Houston center, deals with a wide variety of topics in the coming new year. Topics include tackling personal change, God's mercy and forgiveness, and improving relationships.

Fr. Cedric also has a number of programs dealing with an issue especially close to his heart and the topic of his enormously popular book: Death: The Final Surrender. The programs and book address coping with loss (episode airing this Saturday 1/7) and death and passionately telling people the meaning of life. "My life totally changed as a result of two near-death experiences I had when I was 19 years old. I was shown what will happen when we die." Fr. Cedric's two near-death experiences happened within one month of each other and showed him what his main message in the Pope's New Evangelization would be.

"Who you are is God's gift to you. Who you become is your gift to God." Fr. Pisegna said that, "when I was a teenager, I fell away from religion. I experienced Mass as boring; therefore, thought if God really does exist, he must be dull and boring." Father's near-death experiences changed his views dramatically. "I now know that not only is God alive, but God is passionate, creative and astonishingly personal."

The Pope has reaffirmed his focus of the new evangelization in 2012 with the recent appointees to the Pontifical Council for Promoting the New Evangelization. With his books, TV program, and online ministry Fr. Cedric Pisegna will continue to be one of its most active participants.
