540AM Status Update
January 9, 2019
Thank you, thank you, thank you for your continued prayers! They are working.
As mentioned in the December newsletter, there is light on the horizon.
- Engineering has signed off on completed tasks,
- Attorneys have filed the necessary paperwork
- And now we are waiting on the FCC for the go-ahead.
With the partial government shutdown, we have to wait yet again....
Please continue to pray! And know that as soon as we receive the go-ahead, these challenges will be behind us! And AM540 will ring in our ears!

After moving to Wake Forest from Long Island a few years ago, I began to sense that the Lord was calling me to apply to the seminary to discern the priesthood. However, I was afraid to heed His call. I was comfortable working as a teacher and I didn’t want my life to change. However, Jesus was persistent and would keep calling me for the next six years. I would listen to Divine Mercy Radio every day while driving to work and I kept hearing stories about the priesthood and listeners speaking about their own vocational struggles. One day, I heard a young man discussing his decision to apply to the seminary and how happy he was that he did. I knew that I couldn’t run from Jesus any longer. As a seminarian for the Diocese of Raleigh, I am truly grateful for Divine Mercy Radio for giving me the courage to apply to the seminary. May our Lord bless Divine Mercy Radio and may Our Blessed Mother watch over all who listen to this remarkable radio station!
