Two decades ago, during a time of uncertainty after the terror attacks on September 11, 2001, Fr. Walter Bunofsky, SVD was working at Divine Word College. A nearby radio station asked him to offer short reflections to provide a much-needed sense of peace to listeners. With less than 60 seconds to deliver his message, Fr. Walter started the WORD for Today feature on KDTH in Dubuque. It was originally slated to run until the end of that year, but listeners loved it so much that even after Fr. Walter moved to Techny, Illinois, the station continued to play his recorded reflections. Fr. Walter died on Dec. 29, 2018, but his reassuring words live on each day as KDTH continues to broadcast his messages.
Those same words of wisdom appear here each day. Visit this page often where you will find reflections that can bring you comfort all year long.
