Catholic YouTube

On 10 October Cardinal Secretary of State Tarcisio Bertone, S.D.B., publicized a message to the World Congress of Catholic Television, being held in Madrid, Spain, from October 10 to 12. In it the Cardinal said that Catholics ought to "be co-workers of the truth so as to offer the Good News of our Lord in the multiple formats of audiovisual media, while also witnessing to the beauty of creation."

While some Catholics have the expertise to evangelize via the audiovisual media, more Catholics in the U.S. have the ability to profit from the gospel by listening to (podcasts) and watching (on their computers) these media productions.

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops [U.S.C.C.B.] has launched its Catholic Communications Campaign [abbreviated on the site as CCC-TV]. In addition to catechetical, witness and informational features, the site includes a brief reflection on the daily scriptures by a member of the clergy.

Beneath each entry is a link for viewers to choose a free, necessary player (RealPlayer; WindowsMediaPlayer; or Podcast) in order to profit from these evangelizing offering in the form they find most convenient.
