Some Interesting News from Radio Veritas


Saturday 26 October was celebration day at Radio Veritas as it marked its 20th anniversary. In a speech at the end of Holy Mass attended by Radio Veritas donors, current and former staff members, Dominican priests, and the Catholic community, the main celebrant Apostolic Nuncio, Archbishop Peter Wells (right), congratulated Radio Veritas and its director, Fr Emil Blaser on the milestone. He said Radio Veritas’ ministry went beyond the walls of its studios and beyond its broadcast footprint.

Addressing Fr Emil, the Nuncio thanked him for his dedication to ministry even in his frail state…

The Nuncio said the witness for all and what can be learnt from Fr Emil’s dedication is never to give up, no matter the circumstances…

Ten reasons you should experience Mauritius for yourself!

IMG 3101 edited 1024x683Radio Veritas presenter Khanya Litable was recently invited by the  Mauritius Tourism Promotion Authority (MTPA)  to cover Pope Francis' 9th September 2019 apostolic voyage to Mauritius. 

He very quickly discovered that Mauritius has more to offer than just sandy beaches and sunshine. As Khanya is also a serious and talented photographer, he recorded his impressions of the island on his blog:

Mauritius is affectionately known as the Paradise Island because of its beautiful picturesque beaches. This is why I was totally ecstatic when I received a kind offer from Mauritius Tourism Promotion Authority (MTPA)  to cover Pope Francis 9th September 2019 apostolic voyage to Mauritius. This was as a result of Radio Veritas, The Southern Cross and Spotlight Africa's collaboration to take pilgrims to Mauritius to see the Pope, to have a spiritual revival and a holiday of sorts. The South African office of MTPA were very kind to us and for that we are truly grateful.

And so like a typical inland person, I went to Mauritius expecting to be on the beach everyday all day, save the Pope’s Mass. However, it turned out that Mauritius has far more to offer than the blue clear beaches and perfect weather.
