Mary's Touch, a program of stories from people who have had life-changing encounters with Mary, the Mother of God, has begun airing from Catholic Radio International's website,

Already airing on 47 Catholic radio stations across the U.S., CRI now has the exclusive rights to broadcasting the programs via the internet. New shows will be posted once a week on Mondays.

Co-hosted by Cheri Lomonte and Sally Robb, Mary's Touch (found at is an inspirational program designed to bring a greater understanding of Mary's role in the life of the world, to remind us of her loving presence in our lives, and help us recognize the healing grace she still brings to this world. This happens through the stories of people's real-life encounters with the Mother of God and how those experiences have changed their lives.

Mary's Touch has received ecclesiastical approbation from Bishop Gregory Aymond of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Austin, Texas. In fact, Father Kevin Rai, the theologian assigned by Bishop Aymond to review Mary's Touch, told the bishop, "I have been reviewing theological material for many years now, but this is the first time I have been able to come back with an unqualified Yes. I highly recommend Mary's Touch. I believe it is a work of a grace and more than succeeds at what it sets out to be: inspirational."

Co-host Cheri Lomonte is the author of The Healing Touch of Mary, and has been chronicling people's encounters with the Blessed Virgin for many years. The other co-host, Sally Robb, is already known to CRI listeners as the host of A Thread of Grace. She is a former co-host of Relevant Radio's "Morning Air" program and holds a Master's Degree in Art History from Yale University.

Besides co-hosting Mary's Touch, these two women share some other things in common - they both live in Austin, Texas, they both have six children (though Cheri's are grown and out of the house), and they both have a profound love of the Lord Jesus and His Catholic Church and a great desire to share that love with others.
