Keep a Mellow Heart in a Bitter Time with Salt + Light this weekend

March 6, 2008
We're just over half way through Lent.
It's a time when we may be wavering in our resolutions, or perhaps regretting that we haven't done anything to enter more fully into the passion of our Lord.
This weekend on Salt + Light, we offer viewers an opportunity of encouragement, or depending where you are at, a fresh Lenten beginning! We will be presenting the two-part 2008 National Catholic Mission this Friday, March 7th and Saturday March 8th at 9pm and 1am ET.

A Missionary Oblate of Mary Immaculate, Fr. Rolheiser is the president of the Oblate School of Theology in San Antonio, Texas. He's an author, and columnist who appears in more than 60 newspapers worldwide.
In addition to Fr. Rolheiser, the Mission features youth ministry specialist Thomas Zanzig, and his daughter Barb. Their story explores the family's struggle with Barb's mental illness, and how it has affected their spiritual journey.
Rekindle your faith this Lent, and tune into Salt + Light for the National Catholic Mission this Friday and Saturday!
