 EWTN Devotional Programming

- Benediction and Devotion
Hear the ethereal voices of Poor Clare Nuns singing from the cloister of Our Lady of the Angels Monastery and The Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament in Hanceville, Alabama. Reverence Our Eucharistic Lord in this glorious setting with this beloved devotion.

 - Daily Mass
Priests of the Franciscan Missionaries of the Eternal Word offer the
Holy Sacrifice of the Mass each day from the Chapel on EWTN's grounds as friars intone Gregorian chant. Visiting priests and prelates frequently concelebrate this sacrament instituted by Christ at the Last Supper.

 - Devotionals
This time slot features a variety of short meditations and devotionals. These programs frequently parallel and reinforce the Church's liturgical year with seasonal themes.

 - Divine Mercy Chaplet
Immerse yourself in God's merciful love and the mystical melody of this sung chaplet whose prayers may be recited and counted on a string of beads or a knotted cord. Join the refrain, "Have mercy on us and on the whole world." St. Faustina received this powerful devotion in a revelation in the 1930's.

 - Holy Name Litany
For six centuries, this responsive prayer in honor of the Holy Name of Jesus has been used in public liturgical services and in private devotions for the common necessities of the Church and to implore God's help in times of distress. This petition prayed in English praises Jesus as God and as Man and begs Our Lord to deliver us from evil.

 - The International Rosary 
French, Spanish, Chinese, and English voices accentuate the mysteries of faith contained in the Rosary. Join the men and women, young and old from all walks of life and from around the world who mediate on the Christ's life in the midst of their daily lives.

 - Litaniae Beatae Mariae Virginis
Proclaim in Latin the praises of the Virgin Mary - Mother of God and Mother of the Church - and ask her to pray for us. This majestic litany originated with the 13th century translation of the Holy House of Nazareth to Loreto, Italy.

 - Litaniae Sancti Joseph
Recite in Latin the virtues of St. Joseph, the spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the foster-father of Our Lord Jesus Christ. Ask this just, humble saint to pray that we may be willing to hear and obey just as he was 2,000 years ago.

  - Papal Wednesday Audience
Draw near to the Holy Father, shepherding the flock with his weekly catechism. Whether in the piazza of St. Peter's Basilica or the Paul VI Audience Hall, the Vicar of Christ teaches the Gospel, prays, and greets pilgrims from around the world.

 - The Scriptural Rosary 
The fruit of this Scriptural and repetitive prayer is the peace of contemplation. The Hail Mary and the Our Father gently recede to become a soothing background for voices reciting the 15 Joyful, Sorrowful, and Glorious mysteries of Christ's life. Biblical passages and glorious art elevate the gaze to the Divine.

 - Stations of the Cross
Follow in the footsteps of Jesus on the way to Calvary with His Holiness Pope John Paul II. Contemplate the fruit of Christ's offering on the Cross in the dramatic nocturnal setting of the Roman Coliseum with Gospel readings, meditations, Latin refrains, and paintings of the Passion. Be encouraged to join the faithful and take up your cross.

 - Sunday Mass
Priests of the Franciscan Missionaries of the Eternal Word offer the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass each Sunday from the Chapel on EWTN's grounds as friars intone Gregorian chant. Visiting priests and prelates frequently concelebrate this sacrament instituted by Christ at the Last Supper.
