Our hosts guide you through each liturgical season with insight, personal stories and scripture!

Produced by KDUA & Patriarch Ministries

"Living Seasons of Change" is a radio show based on the Church's liturgical year. Digging deeper into the seasons will help you understand the layout of the Church’s important liturgical readings from scripture. The series is broadcast on KDUA 96.5 FM (Friday 9 AM, Saturday 9 AM & Sunday 5 PM).

It is the desire of the Church to promote the “liturgical” year. God has laid out for us a path of feasts to move us through the seasons of the year, so that by repeating them we might grow in awareness of the importance of God’s plan of salvation and the kingdom —come on earth as it is in heaven. All the seasons are one in heaven —in eternity. God has given the feasts to help us to call to mind his love, his forgiveness, his mercy, his joy.

Using wisdom, the church has set these feasts into a liturgical calendar. The leaders of the Church have also added the days to recall certain saints so as to set aside a time to reflect on the Way; each day can have richness.

Each show of “Living Seasons of Change”, hosted by Patti Brunner with Co-host Monsignor David LeSieur, V.F., will weave the topics of the liturgical calendar, combining God’s love for his people and personal testimony with the teachings of the Catholic Church.
