Christ is Alive
Christus Vivit is the culminating document of the 2018 Synod on Young People, the Faith and Vocational Discernment and the many months of meetings and gatherings that preceded the Synod. Addressed to the Young People and the Entire People of God, Pope Francis begins:
“Christ is alive! He is our hope, and in a wonderful way he brings youth to our world, and everything he touches becomes young, new, full of life. The very first words, then, that I would like to say to every young Christian are these: Christ is alive and he wants you to be alive!”(Christus Vivit #1).
You can read the full document on the Vatican web site.

The goal of WAOB is, as Bishop Lawrence Brandt has said, "to help listeners to delve more deeply into their faith, to be informed about the teachings of the Church, to come to a deeper understanding of the connection between faith and life, and to be drawn closer to God our Father, Who abides with us."
One priest who listens regularly said, "It is like WAOB puts a microphone up to the Catholic Church."
About We Are One Body
With the October, 2016 approval of the Most Reverend Edward C. Malesic, Bishop of the Diocese of Greensburg, its competent ecclesiastical authority (canons 216, 300; cf. also canon 312), We Are One Body Radio operates as an official Catholic media outlet from its headquarters in Latrobe, Pennsylvania.
We Are One Body Radio (WAOB) produces catechetical and contemplative programming. The programming is intended to present the life of the Church in a way that makes the Mystical Body of Christ more apparent: the Pope and bishops united with their priests, in their role as head, working together with the laity in their role as members. The catechetical programming consists of magisterial teaching from the Pope and bishops followed by conversations between priests who explain and elaborate on the magisterial teaching. The We Are One Body programming also contains broadcasts of lectio divina, led by priests, on Scripture, the writings of the saints, and the Catechism of the Catholic Church; leading listeners to interior silence and contemplation through meditation and prayer. The programming described above is supported by broadcasts of prayer from parishes, families and religious orders, including the Holy Mass and the Liturgy of the Hours, and devotions such as the Rosary and Divine Mercy Chaplet.
