Dear Friends, Some time ago we were asked—by the local Christians of the area—to create a Radio Maria network in the town of Nazareth. We absolutely could not ignore this request. After the necessary surveys, we decided that the project was feasible and that it should be undertaken.
Nazareth is an Arab city in the nation of Israel located in the historical region of Galilee. It has around 74,000 inhabitants of which 31.3% are Christian and 68.7% are Muslim. The miraculous event of the Annunciation and the Incarnation of the Son of God took place in the town of Nazareth. It is where the Holy Family lived, where Jesus spent his infancy and childhood. It was in the synagogue of Nazareth that Jesus announced his mission, quoting the prophet Isaiah but meeting with the disbelief of the people. They took him to the edge of a cliff and tried to throw him off it.
Upon the site of his home in Nazareth now stands the beautiful Basilica of the Annunciation. This is where we would like to make Our Lady the gift of a Radio Maria. We hope to gather the funds for the costs, which include the offices and a studio, within the next few months, that is, within 2018. We entrust the project, which has a truly special significance, to your prayers and your generosity. We place our trust and hope in Our Lady of the Annunciation, patroness of Radio Maria.
Yours truly, Fr. Livio
