EWTN to feature the life of Father Joseph Walijewski
Airing at 9:00 PM Central on April 11, 2015, this 60 minute tribute to the Servant of God, Father Joseph Walijewski’s life and ministry, produced and hosted by Bob Dolan of Bob Dolan Productions, is filled with many testaments to his charism. Tracing his life of devotion and dedication, this feature explores how God’s providence guided, and Fr. Joe’s humble service provided the necessary means to minister to those most vulnerable.
His cause for Beatification and Canonization, opened on March 19, 2013, is the first for a priest of the Diocese of La Crosse.
Father Joe spent most of his life in South America, but brought with him the cleverness of a Midwestern farm boy. His simple upbringing and can-do attitude allowed him to respond to those in need with extraordinary success. Despite the setbacks he experienced throughout his life, his faith remained strong and his devotion unwavering.
His story of faith and service gives us courage to confront situations placed in our lives, and the resolution to do something about it. Using the model of his life, we will be inspired to see Christ crucified in everyone we meet.
