Segment 1 – Intro and News


Segment 2 & 3 – Order of Malta Minutes with the Catechism: A Pocket Guide to the Catechism
“For more than a decade, Dame of Malta and veteran journalist Peggy Stanton produced, wrote, and broadcast “The Order of Malta Minute with the Catechism,” a syndicated series of one-minute radio segments that sought to inspire Catholics by familiarizing listeners with the teachings of the Catholic Church, explaining the what and the why of what Catholics believe. Now Stanton’s nearly 260 scripts are published. The Minutes offer text-size teachings distilling the essentials of doctrine in the Catechism and offering a handy guide when readers are questioned WHY they believe WHAT they believe.

Peggy Stanton is the author of “From the White House to the White Cross.” She’s a Dame of the Order of Malta. She was ABC News’ first female Washington correspondent. She has hosted programs on Ave Maria Radio including Power from the Pews. Her first book was “The Daniel Dilemma: The Moral Man in the Public Arena.”
