Lino Rulli hosting special Christmas time editions of his SiriusXM Catholic Channel show from U.S. military bases in Kaiserslautern and Weisbaden
WASHINGTON, D.C.—Lino Rulli, host of The Catholic Guy show on the Catholic Channel on SiriusXM, is joining the military…at least in spirit. Rulli is broadcasting this week from two American military bases in Germany, talking with the men and women of our armed forces, and some of their chaplains, in the days leading up to Christmas.
He started yesterday with an interview with Auxiliary Bishop F. Richard Spencer of the Archdiocese for the Military Services (AMS) at the U.S Army Garrison Kaiserslautern. Lino broadcasts from Kaiserslautern again today before moving to the U.S. Army Garrison Weisbaden to do his show on Wednesday and Thursday. The Catholic Guy airs weekdays at 5:00 pm ET on The Catholic Channel, SiriusXM 129. Non-subscribers can sign up for a 30-day trial here.
While in Germany, Lino is hosting his program alongside military chaplains and talking with soldiers and civilians from the bases about their faith and their experiences overseas, and they will be encouraged to send messages and Christmas wishes to their loved ones back home.
“I have always admired the men and women of our military for their bravery, their willingness to fight and defend our freedoms, and the sacrifices they make on our behalf,” Rulli said. “I see them as heroic figures, but I’ve always been eager to connect with them on a personal level, too. I want to ask them about their families, what their average day is like, what food they miss most being away from home. These are extraordinary people, but I’m curious about the more ordinary parts of their lives and what they have in common with the rest of us.”
