Direct from Hollywood, ACR presents Sister Rose Pacatte from the Daughters of St. Paul. Her mission is to help people of faith understand what we’re seeing and hearing all around us. She’s an educator, author, movie reviewer for the Catholic press, and she’s won numerous awards for her passion to illuminate what’s good in today’s popular culture. Sister Rose will speak about Pope Benedict's theme for the World Day of Communication: how to be silent, to hear and live God's Word in the world of media especially during Lent.

As the churches fill with folks interested in receiving ashes, John Feister talks with faith-formation leader Jeanne Hunt, who gives us not only a perspective on this important date in the liturgical calendar, but on the spiritual journey of Lent.
