WATERTOWN, MA (July 3, 2012) -'Catholics Called To Witness' Representatives to Appear on Live Talk Show of the CatholicTV® Network

On Friday, July 6, 2012, Adriana Gonzalez and Al Silva of Catholics Called to Witness will appear on CatholicTV Network's nationally broadcasted live talk show; This is the Day.

Catholics Called to Witness is a faith-based organization dedicated to upholding and promoting religious liberty, "our first, most cherished liberty" and the following three non-negotiable principles as stressed by Pope Benedict XVI, while encouraging the Catholic community to participate in the public arena.

Catholics Called to Witness works to protect life in all its stages, from the first moment of conception until natural death. They also work to encourage the recognition and promotion of the natural structure of the family - as a union between one man and one woman based on marriage - and its defense from attempts to make it juridical equivalent to radically different forms of union which in reality harm it and contribute to its destabilization, obscuring its particular character and its irreplaceable social role. Catholics Called to Witness also works to protect the right of parents to educate their children.

Adriana Gonzalez Al Silva has been married to Manuel D. Gonzalez, M.D., president of Catholics Called to Witness for over twenty years. Manny is a practicing physician in the Ft. Lauderdale area. Together Manny and Adriana have spent the last fifteen years home schooling their seven children, two of whom are now in college. Adriana has worked the last few years defending parental rights and serves as the Florida State Coordinator.

Al Silva is a successful process engineer and business leader. He and his wife Bobbie are the proud parents of three sons. Al is very active in his faith and parish, St. Mark Catholic Church, serving as a Lector and as an Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion. Additionally, he serves as the Grand Knight of Knights of Columbus Council 13045. He regularly volunteers at St. Mark Catholic School as the "car line guy" and has led several activities for the children of the school. Al is an adult convert to the Catholic faith and speaks regularly to groups about his conversion.
