Hi, my name is Michelle Laque Johnson and I am the Director of Communications at the EWTN Global Catholic Network in Irondale, Ala. and author of “Walking the Way of the Cross for Caregivers: How To Cope Practically, Emotionally, and Spiritually When a Loved One Has a Serious Illness,” available from EWTNRC.com: https://bit.ly/ERC91400. EWTN is the largest Catholic media network in the world — broadcasting to 425 million households in four languages on 11 networks in over 160 countries and territories!

EWTN platforms also include radio services transmitted through SIRIUS/XM, iHeart Radio, and over 600 domestic and international AM & FM radio affiliates; a worldwide shortwave radio service; one of the most visited Catholic websites in the U.S.; as well as EWTN Publishing, its book publishing division.

So who are we? What’s it like to work here? What are we planning to air in the coming months? Find out more in my “Inside EWTN” blog. Find it at http://insideewtn.wordpress.com!

Let me tell you a little bit about myself! I have worked in journalism and communications for more than 25 years, as Editor-in-Chief of an 85,000 circulation newspaper, as an editor/reporter for a metropolitan daily newspaper and several national publications, including “Investor’s Business Daily,” and now as Communications Director for the largest religious media network in the world.

I’ve given workshops for journalists at national and regional press conventions on how to use social media to expand their publications’ outreach and increase circulation, and have trained journalists on how to become an expert in their niche for a national publisher.

I also love using social media and other PR tools to promote organizational goals and create communities. I am the founder of the Facebook group, Caregivers of the Cross, https://www.facebook.com/groups/caregiversofthecross, and this blog. Please come join me at http://insideewtn.wordpress.com!

    How is Fr Tony doing?

    • mjohnsonewtn says:

      Thanks for writing. Fr. Anthony is undergoing treatment for a chronic illness (not terminal) and is unable to celebrate the daily televised Mass. Rest assured, he still participates in the life of the EWTN community as much as he is able. Please continue to pray for him and all our friars. Thank you and God bless you!

    Why hasn t Father Anthony celebrated Mass on TV in so long?

    • mjohnsonewtn says:

      Joe, here’s a post about Fr. Anthony we’ve posted on our Facebook page: “Thank you for your continued concern for Father Anthony Mary. As many of you know, Father has a chronic health condition (not terminal), which means he wrestles with serious bouts of fatigue and has had to reduce his regular pastoral load. He is grateful for your care and for your prayers. He sends his love to all of you and hopes to be back on the air in the near future.”

    For Sunday Night Prime about Science and Creation.
    I am not a Scientist but a believer in the Roman Catholic Church. One day, while watching TV early 1990’s, I saw in one channel:
    Dr. Hugh Ross, who claimed to be a PHYSICIST and a professor of the subject for more than 20 years. He said that in his youth, his mother was taking him to a Christian church, he was introduced to the Bible Christians for years till he went to High School, then College, and he became a Doctor of Physics and he believed himself to be an ATHEIST. He read most religious books till one day, he had to be back to the old Christian Bible. He said, he was surprised by the TRUTH that even in the first 2 verses of GENESIS, he saw the PRINCIPLES of PHYSICS introduced in the CREATION.
    Genesis 1:1-2 In the beginning, when God created the heaven and the earth, and the earth was without form or shape, with darkness over the abyss and a mighty wind sweeping over the waters.
    He saw 5 Principles of Physics in this CREATION account. TIME(In the beginning), SPACE(heaven), MATTER (earth), MOTION( God created), FORCE(mighty wind sweeping).
    As a Catholic, I thought, so after all, these non Catholics and we Catholics can both be led to TRUTH. I went to a Christian Book Store and got a 3 book set on GENESIS by JVernon McGee.
    His 1st book on Ch 1-15, I read p.63. He talked about Herbert Spencer who enumerated these manifestations of the UNKNOWABLE. He also talked about a certain George Dewey Blomgren who was talking to an army sergeant who was a law graduate. Since then, I had been talking in my RCIA classes about these people when asked by Catechumens and candidates about NO CLASH between Science and the BIBLE Story of CREATION. Even PHYSICISTS were led by the CREATOR to the 1st step of LEARNING in a systematic, scientific way.
    Thus the schools have to start with Principles in all studies whatever may be the FIELD.
    I believe the Almighty, all-knowing and all loving merciful GOD. It’s the Jesuits who started our Church and School in the Philippines
    Fr Andrew Apostoli, Bless me and We thank the Lord for your Apostolate

  4. Thank you for sharing the Gospel.
