“Sweet Mother, we consecrate ourselves and Mary's Touch
to your most Immaculate Heart.
We give you every story, every show,
that speaks of your loving intercession;
every heart that, hearing of your gracious love, is moved
to offer itself into your hands
We give you all that we have, all that we love, all that we are....”
On December 8, 2008, we formally dedicated Mary’s Touch to our Blessed Mother
on the feast
of her Immaculate Conception.
Mary’s Touch is an award-winning inspirational 30-minute radio program designed to bring you a greater understanding of Jesus’s Mother, Mary.
In 2007, Mary's Touch was granted an ecclesiastical approbation from the Most Reverend Gregory M. Aymond, Bishop of Austin.
In October 2008, Mary's Touch was honored with the Gabriel Award for outstanding Catholic radio programming, North America, from the Catholic Academy of Communication Arts Professionals.
In 2013, Mary's Touch was named one of the top five Catholic Radio Programs by the Reader's Choice Awards.
The show is broadcast weekly from nearly 100 radio stations across the country and from stations around the world.
The program is co-hosted by Cheri Lomonte, author of The Healing Touch of Mary and Stories from Mary’s Touch, and Father Jim Evans, a priest in the Diocese of Austin.
Mary's Touch: Real-life stories of Mary's love
“Each show includes personal accounts relating the experiences of people who, in unique and desperate situations, have invoked the intercession of our Blessed Mother and received her help in ways that are sometimes very striking, sometimes more quiet and more interior. Always, the help received corresponds to the need expressed. Before the help comes, you have no idea what is going to happen. When it does come, you are surprised, sometimes astonished—though only for a moment. With hindsight, you find yourself exclaiming, "But that is exactly what she would do! This is exactly how she would do it!” ~ Reverend Kevin Rai, STD
“I really believe that we've gotten through our struggles because I can look to Mary as an example...she reminds me that God is there for me,
and He is my strength in difficult times.”
~ Gracie, Mary’s Touch Program 1.10
“She is our mother, according to the order of Grace, and what does a mom do? She prays for her children....and Jesus gave the Blessed Mother that charge
when she stood at the foot of His Cross.”
~ Father Daniel Mahan, Mary’s Touch Program 1.11
“It's interesting how God works….He knew I had a difficult relationship with my mom…and He opened up the door in my heart to a relationship with Mary,
which helps me in my relationship with my mom…”
~ Carlos, Mary’s Touch Program 1.18
“I soon realized that to embrace a cross is to completely surrender to God,
to trust Him,to place it in your heart with a great joy...
...and through God's grace, you can do this.”
~ Sherri Davis, Mary’s Touch Program 1.20
“I go there to let them know that God loves them...that they are not 'throw-away people'....It brings tears to my eyes that they have not had one person in their lives that loves them...I want them to know God loves them. He is our Father...and Mary's job is to bring us to Jesus...to bring us to that love and that joy.”
~ Debbie, Mary’s Touch Program 1.29
