Publisher's Summary

Father Peyton of the Holy Cross Fathers wanted to inspire his country with a radio program. Footing the expense of the show himself, he arranged for some of the biggest names in radio and film to donate their services, and for a network to provide the broadcast time. The series that resulted featured heartwarming stories for audiences nationwide. The commercial breaks were filled only with an earnest, non-sectarian appeal for family prayer, reminding listeners that "The family that prays together stays together."

The eighteen episodes presented in this collection - comedies, dramas, and adventures - entertain; invite thought about foibles, faith and family; and feature an amazing array of stars including Natalie Wood, James Cagney, Tyrone Power, Bob Hope, Ozzie and Harriet Nelson, Jim and Marian Jordan, Jack Webb, and Jack Benny, among many others. Includes a Program Guide by William Nadel that traces the history of this unique series in facts and pictures.
