Irondale, AL (EWTN) – Are you interested in keeping your brain healthy as you age? Do you think it’s too late? Have you or a loved one already been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or some other form of dementia? Are you a caretaker to someone with dementia?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you will not want to miss two special series coming exclusively to the EWTN Global Catholic Network in February and March. (Find EWTN at www.ewtn.com/channelfinder.)
“Remembering Jesus” is a riveting 13-part series that gives you both a Catholic and a medical perspective for keeping your brain healthy and features Fr.

You’ll also be happy to know that many Catholic faith practices can make a demonstrable difference in your health. Learn why forgiveness and prayer are key to alleviating stress; hear Fr. Landry relay great stories about Pope John Paul II who managed to put his day behind him by going to the chapel, dropping to his knees, and famously saying, “It’s your Church Lord, I’m going to bed!”
In addition, don’t miss a special week on EWTN’s “Women of Grace” series entitled “When the Diagnosis is Dementia.” The programs air at 11 a.m. ET and 11 p.m. ET, Monday through Friday, Feb. 4-8 -- exclusively on EWTN.
