The life and legacy of Mr. Rogers today on Morning Glory!

Leave a comment

On a fun Friday edition of Morning Glory, we explore the extraordinary life of Mr. Fred Rogers with a new documentary coming out next month! Elizabeth Ficocelli shared her memories of growing up watching the show. 2018 marks 50 years since the debut of “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood.” Created and hosted by Fred Rogers, the children’s TV show launched in 1968 and ran for nearly 33 years. The show’s message of love and acceptance shaped whole generations of children — around 8 percent of families with TVs watched the show at its peak. Check out the trailer here

Guests include surfer turned priest Father Donald Calloway on the importance of pilgrimage, USCCB attorney Hilary Byrnes on a US Bishops’ appeal to protect children in foster care, and we talk ‘Thinking Right, and Living Well’–Archbishop Fulton Sheen’s life with Bert Ghezzi–all on a fun Friday edition of Morning Glory!

Make sure to join us every weekday morning for ALL the news of the day from a Catholic perspective 7am ET!

Happy Friday!
