Join Us … On the Road to Jerusalem

February 23, 2007
Back in 1996 The Dallas Cowboys became the first team to win 3 Super Bowls in a span of 4 seasons, Mother Teresa received honorary U.S. citizenship, Democrat incumbent Bill Clinton defeated Bob Dole to win his second term, Fr. Thomas Rosica was working as Executive Director of the Newman Centre and with the Faculty of Theology at the University of Toronto, Archbishop Terrence Prendergast was Auxiliary Bishop of Toronto and Gita Hosek was running her own production company …
Really only the last 3 pieces of that flashback to ’96 have anything to do with On the Road to Jerusalem.
On the Road to Jerusalem is a six part series hosted by Archbishop Terrence Prendergast that helps prepare our hearts for Easter, taking us on a reflective biblical journey each week. The series will begin this Sunday February 25th with an episode entitled “The Desert Experience”, wrapping up on Holy Week with the episode “The Meaning of Holy Week”. Below you will find the complete episode listing and the dates they will air, but for now … back to my flashback.
… In 1996 when Fr. Rosica was approached by the National Catholic Broadcasting Council to write the script for this series On the Road to Jerusalem, he had no idea he would ever work in television. And while Gita Hosek was working as producer/director of the series, the thought of working for a Catholic TV station in Canada never even crossed her mind – as such a thing didn’t exist! Today Fr. Rosica and Gita work together with our team here to make Catholic TV in Canada a reality. Though the dream of this network had not yet been dreamt – I like to think a little piece of Salt + Light TV started back in 1996 on the set of this beautiful Lenten series.
On the Road to Jerusalem will air every Sunday @ 8pm and Midnight ET with repeats the following Wednesday @ 9:30pm and 1:30am ET.
Week I The Desert Experience
Week II The Mountain Experiences of Life
Week III Holy Places in Our Lives
Week IV The Meaning of Suffering
Week V Lazarus: Promise of New Life
Week VI The Meaning of Holy Week
