There countless stimuli that are competing for your attention on a daily basis. Some are helpful and necessary things, and others are merely a way to zone out and waste time. One of the more popular forms of stimulus is radio. Whether you listen through a stereo or over the web, most Americans spend at least some time interacting with radio programming. For Catholics, as it is with many things, the radio can have an adverse effect on our faith. What we listen to has a powerful effect on our minds. Even as we habitually listen in our car or as we do are work, it may seem like you were not paying attention and wouldn’t be able to repeat what was heard. However, our subconscious mind heard every word, every lyric, and will affect us whether we realize it or not.
It is for this reason that the radio we choose to listen to should be carefully chosen. Allowing worldly media to root itself in our minds can be very dangerous. Though it may be stimulating, we need to guard ourselves against content that can harm our relationship with Christ. Fortunately, there is another option that is both stimulating, entertaining, and exceedingly beneficial to our Catholic faith.
Whether you love politics or would rather have nothing to do with them, it is valuable to understand the current state of our world from a positive Catholic viewpoint. Politics can be very stimulating and thought-provoking, and it is easy for us to draw conclusions and form opinions that are less than Christ-like. Having programming like the Drew Mariani Show, and A Closer Look with Sheila Liaugminas help us to understand and think through the issues facing us while boosting our faith.
Sound Wisdom and Solid Advice
We all face numerous choices and challenges every day. Some seem small and insignificant while others may be life-altering and painful. It is so easy for us to lose sight of our faith in these times of trial, and begin to question the truth we need to cling to. Programs including Go Ask Your Father, and On Call provides programming that helps answer those questions and guide us to a better relationship with Christ. Even if you do not call in and ask a question you are struggling with, you may be surprised to learn how many others have the same challenges.
