What follows is just a small sampling of the new programming viewers can expect in 2016:
- “Father Spitzer’s Universe:” Is creation compatible with evolution? What is the scientific evidence for the existence of God? What is happiness and how can one attain it? Philosopher and Theologian Father Robert Spitzer will answer viewer questions in this show moderated by EWTN’s Doug Keck.
- “Discerning the Will of God: An Ignatian Guide to Catholic Decision Making:” Father Timothy Gallagher is known to EWTN viewers for two blockbuster series: “Living the Discerning Life” and “Finding God in All Things.” Now, this popular priest wants to help viewers discern God’s will for them.
- “A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing:” This 60-minute docu-drama presents a Catholic response to the life and thought of Saul Alinsky, a 1960s community organizer, whose “Rules for Radicals” impacts the thinking of many in politics today as well some in the Church, especially in the area of social justice.
- “St. Catherine of Siena:” This original docu-drama, filmed on location in Italy, features interviews, a tour of sites important to the saint’s life, and dramatized recitations of her most important writings.
- “The Inquisition:” This EWTN original mini-series, filmed on location in France, Spain, Italy and England, presents the truths and dispels the myths about this misunderstood historical event. From the same producers who brought you the EWTN blockbuster “The Crusades.”
- “Marie’s Story:” The true story of Marie Heurtin, a kind of Catholic Hellen Keller, who was born deaf and blind. At the Larnay Institute in Central France, the idealistic Sister Marguerite brings this young girl out of the darkness into which she was born.
- “Kateri – All For Christ:” This original EWTN mini-series, filmed on location in the U.S. and Canada, covers the life and spirituality of St. Kateri Tekakwitha. From the same team who brought you EWTN’s original movie, “Kateri.”
- “Real Life Catholic:” Host Christ Stephanik steps into the life of everyday Catholics as they work, serve and build, while highlighting the spiritual lessons of gratitude and reliance on God’s Providence. Chris harvests cranberries with a Catholic farmer, kayaks with a priest and flies a propelled hang-glider – and that’s just the first episode!
Other specials include “The Vanier Way,” “Discovering Damien: Saint of Molokai,” Gregorian Chant: The Music of the Angels,” “Welcome to Krakow: Home of World Youth Day 2016” – and so much more.
