Irondale, AL (EWTN) – EWTN Global Catholic Network will host its 10th free Family Celebration Aug. 8-9 at the Birmingham-Jefferson Convention Complex in Birmingham, Ala. This year’s theme, “Rejoice in Hope,” comes from Romans 12:12: “Rejoice in your hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer” and echoes the theme of Pope Benedict’s encyclical: “Saved by Hope.”

Those who attend can expect to rejoice in the roster of well-loved speakers. They include EWTN News Director and Mother Angelica Biographer Raymond Arroyo; Danny Abramowicz and his “Crossing the Goal” team; “Journey Home” Host Marcus Grodi, “Open Line” Host Barbara McGuigan, and Father of Mercy Wade Menezes, CPM, a network regular.

BOOKMARK
The Unchanging Heart of the PriesthoodThe Unchanging Heart of the Priesthood
Fr. Thomas Acklin


In view of Benedict XVI’s declaration of the Year for Priests, this week’s "Bookmark" interview with Host Doug Keck and Fr. Tom Acklin couldn’t be more relevant. Fr. Acklin gives us an honest and authentic perspective on the challenges and rewards of being a priest, as well as an understanding of the encouraging trends seen among those young seminarians of the John Paul II generation.
