Cinnaminson, NJ (April 9, 2012) - Beginning on April 16, 2012, the popular Following The Truth radio program on BlogTalkRadio will be expanding from 30 to 60 minutes . Created and hosted by Catholic lay evangelist Gary Zimak, the show will air from 8 - 9 PM Eastern every Monday thru Friday. In addition, all programs are archived and can be downloaded as podcasts (free of charge) from the BlogTalkRadio archives or iTunes.

"When I first started the show in December of 2010", Zimak recalled, "it was 15 minutes long and aired three times per week. A few months later, I felt the call to expand it to 30 minutes and now it's time to expand again!" The program is designed to help listeners become better Catholics, by teaching the basics of the Faith and motivating them to pursue a personal relationship with Jesus.

In addition to the daily feature, "Catholicism by THE Book", in which the current day's Mass readings are read and discussed, the expanded program will feature novenas, devotions (including St. Louis de Montfort's Total Consecration to Jesus through Mary, which begins in September), music and a unique theme each night:

(Monday) What Catholics Really Believe - Learn what Catholics REALLY believe about the Eucharist, Mary, the Saints, the Sacraments, indulgences and other often misunderstood topics.

(Tuesday) Finding God's Will - What is God's will for our lives? Using the teachings of Saint Ignatius of Loyola, Saint Alphonsus Liguori, Saint Francis de Sales and others, Gary will offer suggestions for discerning and following God's will.

(Wednesday) Imitating Christ - Learn to better imitate Jesus by reflecting on Thomas a Kempis' spiritual masterpiece, The Imitation of Christ.

(Thursday) Mother's Day - This day is set aside for discussing the Blessed Mother and various Marian devotions.

(Friday) Speak Lord, Your Servant Is Listening - Get ready to hear the Lord speak to you at Mass! Gary will read and discuss the Mass readings for the upcoming Sunday's liturgy.

According to Zimak, "Catholics are hungry to learn more about their faith and to apply Church teachings to their everyday lives. They have many questions. How does God want us to handle situations that arise in our lives? How do we find time to pray when we're busy? How can I find peace in the midst of problems? While teaching the facts is very important, I also want to ensure that we learn how to apply those facts and encounter Christ in the midst of our ordinary duties. This expanded format will now give me more time to make that happen. I'm looking forward to working with the listeners as we journey together toward our ultimate destiny - eternal life in Heaven!"
