Just Love is about more than just loving others. It's about feeding the hungry and sheltering the homeless. It's about advocating for a just and compassionate society in which everyone -- young and old, citizen and newcomer, Catholic and non-Catholic -- can live and thrive in peace and safety. JustLove is about the work Catholic Charities do nationwide to rebuild after disasters, to touch almost every human need, and to provide help and create hope where they're needed. It's about doing rather than JustLiving.

Pastoral Reflections is an uplifting and inspiring, 30-minute ecumenical program intended to deepen and enrich one’s understanding of their spiritual and human journey. The program feature’s PRI’s creative director, Father Don Fischer, as he reflects on each Sunday’s Scripture readings and how the prevailing message each Sunday is rooted in the recognition that as believers, we are called to accept our imperfect human condition and its perfect complement - the indwelling presence of a loving God. Father Don has always looked for the story within the story, going beyond the subtle teachings of Christ telling us what to do or what to believe, to the messages that heal and transform us as Christians.

In 2001, he was appointed auxiliary bishop of his home diocese by Pope St. John Paul II, who, a year later, made him archbishop of Milwaukee.

He has served as president of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, Catholic Relief Services chairman, and co-chair of the National Jewish-Catholic Dialogue.

Along with more than 1,000 priests from around the world, The Missionaries of Mercy are to be in special service to the Holy Father and the local bishops as a “living sign of the Father’s welcome to all those in search of his forgiveness…” (Misericordiae Vultus #18)

They are the parents of four children and have two grandchildren. After a near-drowning incident with their daughter in 1984, Gus and Michelle realized they needed God in their lives. Their journey led them back to the Catholic Church. Lloyd became active in the Catholic charismatic movement and attended the Catholic School of Lay Evangelization. In 1992, he joined the staff of WBVM, the Catholic radio station in Tampa, FL, and hosted a popular morning show there for nearly 13 years. In 2006, the archdiocese of New York contacted Lloyd to host the morning show for The Catholic Channel, a new venture on Sirius Satellite Radio. He’s been the host of Seize the Day ever since. In addition to hosting his daily radio show, Gus is a popular speaker at conferences, retreats, and parish missions.

Rulli began his media career in television. He was host and executive producer of Generation Cross, a nationally syndicated Catholic comedy show for which he won back-to-back Emmy Awards.
