Stocks in this article: SIRI

NEW YORK, April 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- SiriusXM will offer listeners the most comprehensive radio coverage available of the upcoming canonizations of Pope John Paul II and Pope John XXIII with a full week of programming dedicated to the historic proceedings and live coverage of the Canonization Mass in Rome, when Pope Francis will officially declare the two former pontiffs to be saints.


The Catholic Channel Presents: The Making of a Saint will feature special programming starting Monday, April 21 through Sunday, April 27 on SiriusXM channel 129.  Listeners will hear specials hosted by Cardinals Timothy Dolan and Edward Egan, archival recordings of Popes John Paul II and John XXIII, live programming from the Vatican hosted by Catholic Channel experts and more.

The Catholic Channel will also serve as a forum for Catholics and non-Catholics alike to call in and ask questions about the canonization process, share their memories of John Paul II and John XXIII, and be a part of the discussion about sainthood.

"The making of a saint is always a wonderful occasion for the Church, made particularly special in this case as Blesseds John Paul II and John XXIII were loved and admired by so many millions of people across several generations," said Cardinal Dolan.   "I am excited to invite a nation of listeners, from all faiths, to join us through the Catholic Channel to discuss the qualities of these men and their impact on our world."

"The Canonization of Pope John Paul II and Pope John XXIII will be a historic event and a joyous experience for millions of people around the world," said Dave Gorab, Vice President and General Manager, Talk Programming, SiriusXM.  "The Catholic Channel will offer a unique level of coverage that will inform listeners about the lives of two of the Church's greatest leaders and give the audience a forum to express what these two men have meant to them in their own lives."
