Show’s seventh season premieres Wednesday

The seventh season of The Catholic View for Women will premiere Wednesday, March 15, on EWTN.

Co-hosts Astrid Bennett Gutierrez, Teresa Tomeo and Janet Morana will return with 13 episodes that take a deep dive into the hot-button issues of the day, including how the women’s movement has been hijacked by radical pro-abortion feminists; chastity in the Latina community; pornography on the newsstand and the shocking rates of abortion of babies with Down syndrome.

“We feel very blessed, and very grateful to EWTN, to be able to continue to offer women an alternative to the junk they’ll find when channel surfing,” said Mrs. Morana, executive director of Priests for Life and co-founder of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign. “We can guarantee that those who tune in will find something of value in every episode.”

High-profile guests like Victoria Hearst, the granddaughter of newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst; Timmerie Millington and Sue Ellen Browder will talk about the issues important to Catholic women today.

“Despite the many challenges we face, it’s never been a better time to be a woman, and more specifically a woman in the Catholic Church,” said Catholic author and radio host Ms. Tomeo.

“People are hungry for God and are searching like never before. Our program allows us to reach women right we’re they’re at, but to move them into a closer and stronger relationship with God. I’m looking forward to another season of addressing real issues that impact the real, everyday lives of our sisters in Christ.”

Ms. Bennett Gutierrez, executive director of The Vida Initiative will say farewell to the Catholic View after this seventh season. Next year she will co-host a new show for women on EWTN Spanish.

“I am excited for you to tune in to the latest season of The Catholic View for Women to hear the amazing testimonies of women who have overcome incredible trials because of their strong faith,” she said. “These are the women who should serve as role models in society. And they are truly happy! And I’ve been happy spending these six awesome years next to my two beautiful co-hosts, Janet Morana and Teresa Tomeo, but I am sad to share that I will be moving on from the show to my new role as co-host of new series for women for EWTN Spanish “Ellas lo dicen” (According to Her) where Eliana Perez and Neydy Casillas and I will be sharing some of the same beautiful and urgent topics we have brought to you. Thank you for your prayers and viewership!

The Catholic View for Women airs at 11 p.m. ET on Wednesdays and is rebroadcast at 10:30 a.m. Fridays.

Topical – Controversial – Relevant: The Catholic View for Women’s Sixth Season Kicks Off Sept. 7

The Catholic View for Women will tackle sizzling hot topics when its sixth season premieres Sept. 7 on EWTN.

Co-hosts Astrid Bennett Gutierrez, Janet Morana and Teresa Tomeo will give the Catholic View treatment to the transgender movement, same-sex attraction, the lingering damage of the sexual revolution and choosing chastity. Guests also will address street evangelization and how to cope after the death of a teenager.

Intimate Graces: How Practicing the Works of Mercy Bring Out the Best in Marriage, written by Ms. Tomeo and her husband, Deacon Dominick Pastore, will be highlighted in one episode and Father John Riccardo of the Archdiocese of Detroit will be on two episodes to discuss what people in the pews are longing to hear from their priests.

“You don’t want to miss the new season,” said Ms. Bennett Gutierrez, executive director of the Vida Initiative and Los Angeles Pregnancy Services. “Our guests will share moving testimonies of how they are living their faith despite pressures from the Culture — like living chastity or discerning a vocation in a secularized world by young Catholic women, or raising a precious baby with special needs. Women of all ages should tune because they’ll be inspired to find the answers to all of life’s challenges in the splendor of our Catholic faith.”

The show began in 2011 as an antidote to secular women’s shows like “The View,” where, Mrs. Morana notes, the conservative women on the panel and guests who are pro-life or against same-sex marriage are regularly shouted down.

“Shows like that say they are about women and women’s issues, but they rarely delve into topics that matter to real women, and they never talk about the things that matter to Catholic women,” said Mrs. Morana, executive director of Priests for Life and co-founder of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign. “That’s what we specialize in at The Catholic View for Women.”

Catholic media personality Ms. Tomeo concurred: “What I love most about this opportunity to speak to women around the world is that we are able to address at length real issues that impact women but are rarely discussed in the secular culture. Once again will be sharing stories and interviews that are sure to make a difference in our viewers’ knowledge of their faith and they way they apply it to their everyday lives.”

The Catholic View airs at 11 p.m. ET on Wednesdays and is rebroadcast at 10:30 a.m. Fridays.

New episodes this week on “Defending Life” and “The Catholic View for Women”

NEW YORK, NY — “Defending Life,” the longest-running and farthest-reaching television series on abortion, and “The Catholic View for Women,” a thought-provoking alternative to secular talk shows, will air new episodes on EWTN beginning this week.

“Defending Life,” which has been a part of the network lineup since 1995, will air at 2:30 a.m. ET on Wednesdays and 11 p.m. ET on Thursdays. “The Catholic View for Women” will return for a fourth season with shows airing at 11 p.m. Wednesdays and 10:30 a.m. Fridays.

Co-hosts Janet Morana, Executive Director of Priests for Life, and Father Denis Wilde, O.S.A., Associate Director, will kick off the 25th season of “Defending Life” with an episode about the importance of the November mid-term elections.

“Pope Francis urged us not to be afraid of ‘making trouble’ in order to advance the Gospel,” said Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life. “What does that say about our approach to elections?”

Future episodes will cover topics including reversing chemical abortions, pro-life successes in closing abortion mills and what it’s like to work for Planned Parenthood. High-profile guests will include Bishop Anthony Fisher, O.P., Bishop of the Diocese of Parramatta, Australia, and Robert Muise, co-founder and senior counsel of the American Freedom Law Center. Muise will discuss the Priests for Life lawsuit against the HHS mandate, which is the lead case of the religious non-profit groups, and the first to have had oral arguments heard on the appellate level. A decision is expected soon.

Muise said this lawsuit “goes to the very core of Priests for Life’s reason for existing as an organization. The ministry is well situated – and perhaps best suited – to challenge the mandate and its application to non-exempt, nonprofit religious organizations.’ ”

The fourth season of the highly rated “The Catholic View for Women” promises controversy, conversion and plenty of Catholic conversation.

EWTN Rome Bureau Chief Joan Lewis will join hosts Astrid Bennett-Gutierrez, Janet Morana and Teresa Tomeo on the first episode for a discussion of two of the Church’s newest saints: Saint John Paul II and Saint John XXIII.

Future episodes will cover topics including care of the elderly and the wisdom we can gain from people in their later years; Pope Francis and the theology of women, and becoming a “24/7 Catholic.”

Other shows in this new season are sure to ignite controversy. A four-part series will take an in-depth look at the Church’s stance on homosexuality and what Pope Francis really meant when he made his now-famous “Who am I to judge” comment.

“As we have in previous seasons, we try in each of these episodes to emphasize everything you can do as a Catholic, rather than everything you can’t do,” said Mrs. Morana, the executive director of Priests for Life and co-founder of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign. “The Catholic Church has so much to offer women, and that’s what we hope to show all of our viewers.”

Referring to “Defending Life,” Father Wilde said: “We know our shows have an impact because people often write to tell us so. One letter, written by a graduate student at Purdue University, said the show ‘has inspired me to become more proactive in my pro-life efforts’ and the young woman thanked Priests for Life for ‘informing me about the awful truth of abortion, and for encouraging me to speak out against this injustice.’ “

Priests for Life urges viewers to promote the show to parishes and pro-life organizations.
