The Frontline Faith program distributes compact MP3 players, preloaded with Christian content, to members of our Armed Forces on the Frontlines.
The Frontline Faith players provide nearly 7 hours of spiritual content, especially as it pertains to military service. The Frontline Faith Players include a Mass, celebrated by Archbishop Timothy P. Broglio of the U.S. Archdiocese for the Military Services; a “Warrior Rosary,” conceived by Lynda MacFarland, the wife of a career military man, using the Sorrowful Mysteries and recited by the auxiliary bishops and chaplain priests of the Archdiocese for the Military Services; and prayers written and recited by children. Other programming on the players includes “Centurions of Rome,” presentation made by the late Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point; “The Mass Explained,” by Father Larry Richards; an examination of conscience; and two-and-a-half hours of stories about faith in military life, told by troops in their own words, including “The Grunt Padre,” about a priest who ministered to infantry soldiers, and a tale of a soldier who carried the Eucharist into battle.
Because of the severe shortage of chaplains serving our military, troops can go weeks and even months without seeing a Catholic chaplain or receiving the Sacraments. There are over 300,000 Catholic service men and women and less than 300 Catholic chaplains. The Frontline Faith players fill the gap between visits from a chaplain and provide the type of media that young service men and women appreciate and enjoy. Players are available at No Charge to Armed Forces.
