Father Robert Barron or Word on Fire and the Catholicism series recently tour Australia and was interviewed about how the Church communicates her answers…
This is a Catholic moment. Why? Because of the new media. You’ve got this explosion of imagery… of sending things now 24/7 all over the world, just like that.
YouTube can and should be a Catholic place… a place of imagery. People are much more likely (people under 40) to click on a visual, a video rather than a text.
That’s our moment.
So, I think that’s something that we should seize and we should encourage young people to say that a catholic thing- to love the image and to benefit from it.
I think we’ve got to move into the new media and we have to do it with boldness and with a Catholic confidence.
