New EWTN show -- "Crossing the Goal" -- encourages men to get in to spiritual shape

The Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN) is set to air a new series focused on men's spirituality. The show debut takes place on Friday, September 5th @ 9PM (Eastern), 6PM (Pacific) with multiple airings on EWTN television & radio. See the schedule.

Here is the show description:

Danny Abramowicz, former NFL all-pro wide receiver and coach, has created a television show with EWTN Global Catholic Network called “Crossing the Goal,” which uses a sports show format to encourage men to get into spiritual shape.

“On this show, we talk to men about the things that are happening in their lives right now and we challenge them to do something about it,” said Abramowicz, who played for the New Orleans Saints and the 49ers. “Guys respond to a challenge. The Lord will help them, but they have to admit that something is not right in their life.”

Abramowicz – who ranked, in varying years, in the Top 10 for receptions, receiving yards, and touchdowns – admits that he is a former party boy whose life once revolved around his ego and booze. He says he and his three co-hosts – Peter Herbeck, vice-president of Renewal Ministries; Curtis Martin, founder of Fellowship of Catholic University Students; and professional broadcaster Brian Patrick – provide real solutions to the spiritual challenges men face.

Segments include “The Kickoff,” where the problem of the day is quickly presented; “The Game Plan,” where two team members lay out the facts men need to know; “The Red Zone,” where the team talks about how they’ve dealt with the problem in their own lives, and “The End Zone,” where each team member gives the audience a take-away for the week.

“The economy is tough,” he said. “Men don’t think of the Lord when things are rockin’ and rollin’. When things start turning bad, that’s when we need to be available to the men.”
