WATERTOWN, MA (February 22, 2012) The CatholicTV® Network to Air Special Lenten Programming

During the season of Lent, the CatholicTV® Network will offer Lenten programming focusing on this solemn time of year. Enjoy original CatholicTV programming and specials from around the universal Church, concluding with Holy Week broadcasts from Notre Dame, Boston and Vatican City. Tune in for various special programming commemorating the death, burial and resurrection Jesus Christ.

Lenten programming will include special programming and broadcasts.

Each day after the Chaplet of Divine Mercy at 3 PM and after the Daily Mass rebroadcasts on CatholicTV, President of the CatholicTV Network, Father Robert Reed, will offer a Lenten reflection based on the book "A Lenten Journey with Jesus Christ and Saint Therese of Lisieux".

During Lent, the original CatholicTV "series", Blink, takes on a Lenten theme. Blink features Catholics from around the universal church sharing their belief and their wisdom. See a Lenten Blink segment with video from Catholic Relief Services for Operation Rice Bowl and reflections from Father Reed, Father Warren Savage and seminarians on Father Romanus Cessario's "The Seven Last Words of Jesus." Tune in for a new Blink on Wednesday at 7:30 PM each week during Lent.

The Seven Last Words of Christ, a series of reflections offered by the Gregorian Concert Choir from the Cathedral of Saints Peter and Paul in Providence, R.I., under the direction of Father Anthony Mancini will also air during the season of Lent.

Join priests, religious and members of the laity for the special Lenten series, ARISE. For six weeks, each half-hour show will feature readings and reflections on Lenten themes.

Journey with our blessed Lord on his way to Calvary in this classic Catholic mediation on the Passion of Christ. During Lent, three different versions of the stations of the cross air with hosts Father Reed, Msgr. John Zenz and Father Frank McFarland.

Msgr. Zenz, from the Archdiocese of Detroit, presents a mini-series examining the Sunday Gospel reading based on the Gospel of Mark. Actors play out the reading, followed by a theological reflection. Catch A Path to Glory on CatholicTV.
