"Is it possible that our enemies must be so active as to have the upper hand, while we remain passive, limiting ourselves to some prayer? Do we not perhaps have more powerful arms, the protection of heaven and of the Immaculate Virgin... the conqueror and destroyer of heresies who will never yield to the enemy who raises his head." - St. Maximillian Kolbe
Embracing the call of Vatican II for lay evangelization through the power of the media, we at Holy Family Radio, Inc., intend to utilize radio broadcasts to provide, through prayer and the guidance of the Holy Spirit, the Truth of the Holy Catholic Church for the nourishment of our Catholic Family and to share our Faith with others.
Holy Family Radio, Inc., is an apostolate of lay Catholics in communion with the Holy Father and the Magisterium, and place ourselves in the hands of the Holy Family; Jesus, Mary, and Joseph. Through the inspiration of Saint Maximilian Kolbe and all the saints and martyrs, we will use our gifts and talents to actively work through these radio broadcasts to make known the Good News of Jesus Christ, for the honor and glory of God and the salvation of souls.
"...but the Word of God remains forever." 1 Peter 1:25
