This broadcasting is the result of strong popular demand, fueled by the popularity of the morning show. In fact, in the years leading up to this broadcast, the Oratory regularly received hundreds of letters asking to broadcast the Sunday Mass.
The initiative, however, did not come from the Oratory, but from the directors of CKAC.
They were the ones who approached the then Archbishop of Montréal, Bishop Joseph Charbonneau, in order to obtain the broadcast.
CKAC took care of the technical details by installing a soundproof booth in the Crypt Church, next to the pulpit, to allow the presenters to provide a description of the proceedings.
