"Thank you for your wonderful Ancient Faith Radio ministry. It is often on in our home, streamed through our iPhones. A few years ago I mentioned to my priest that I found it hard to turn off NPR during Great Lent when I wanted to cut down on distractions. He recommended replacing it with AFR, and ever since I have enjoyed your streaming music and talk and listened to many of your podcasts. "
