Catholic charity launches major TV series

Aid to the Church in Need (ACN) tomorrow begins screening a 26 part international Catholic documentary series on Australian cable TV.

Where God Weeps is a weekly half hour program to be shown on the Aurora Community TV channel, which is available on Channel 183 to Foxtel/Austar/Optus subscribers of the Basic Digital package.

The series will focus on areas in the world where the Church is still suffering - where the faithful are unable to live their faith fully due to political, social and financial constraints. It will draw on the perspectives of experts, including bishops, priests, missionaries, and lay people, who will testify to the suffering Church.

The first three programs feature the story of ACN founder Fr Werenfried van Straaten (pictured), also known as "The Bacon Priest."

Australian ACN Director Philip Colignon says the aim of the program is to awaken the awareness of Catholic viewers to the situation of the Church in need worldwide and in so doing, unite the suffering Church with its brothers and sisters in Christ in the universal Church.
