Radio Veritas Asia (RVA) Myanmar Language Service celebrated RVA Day and inaugurated the new studio of RVA Myanmar in Mandalay on December 7.
Archbishop Marco Tin Win of Mandalay Archdiocese blessed and opened RVA Myanmar’s new studio, named ‘Studio RVA’ at 4:30 p.m. and presided over the thanksgiving Mass for God’s blessing and the donors from every corner and the RVA fans at 5 p.m.
The archbishop said, “As we are evangelists according to catholic values, we must be able to proclaim Jesus Christ and the values of Christianity, which can never be vanished. I would like to thank everyone, who is witnessing the gospel and the life of Christ with his/her might, perseverance, verbalizing, thoughts, and deeds.”
“Every one of us has taken responsibility for Radio Veritas Myanmar Service, Mandalay, by participating in several broadcasting events, so, on behalf of the whole Archdiocese and myself, thank you,” Archbishop Tin Win expressed his gratitude.
After the Mass, the coordinator of RVA Myanmar, Sister Lucia Thandar Aung (SJA), thanked all donors for the new studio and everyone who actively broadcasts RVA programs.
"Not to convert, but to evangelize" is the motto of RVA, and thank you for your reading, watching, supporting, and listening to RVA programs," Sister Lucia thanked, informing in advance about the online lucky draw program.
She apologized to RVA's old fans of short waves, listeners of different faiths, and online fans of the new Era for not being able to have a listeners' meeting in person these days due to the situation, as they usually had every year.
She spoke out that the RVA listeners and fans are the lifeblood of RVA Myanmar and invited them to continue being patrons.
The sister announced the Spin Wheel lucky draw program for the RVA Myanmar fans, especially for TOP FANs at Christmas or New Year.
Daw Mary Thomas, one of the listeners from Radio transmission time to today's online programs, told RVA, "I listen to all daily news. The program I love most is "The Message of Pope Francis. I believe all the programs are precious."
Daw Mary added that she would like to thank RVA for creating daily spiritual medicine for her, and it was beneficial for the neighbours to hear the Good News while she was listening RVA program.
RVA Myanmar encouraged all to connect with RVA to boost, strengthen and share their faith.

Radio Veritas Asia (RVA), a media platform of the Catholic Church, aims to share Christ. RVA started in 1969 as a continental Catholic radio station to serve Asian countries in their respective local language, thus earning the tag “the Voice of Asian Christianity.” Responding to the emerging context, RVA embraced media platforms to connect with the global Asian audience via its 21 language websites and various social media platforms.
