New website gathers video resources for Catholic ministry

.- The new website Catholic Link catalogues videos and other resources useful for ministry and evangelization, aspiring to proclaim the gospel with “creativity and ingenuity.”

“We are deeply convinced that our Catholic Faith in the Lord Jesus is the answer today, for all people, of all ages,” said Garrett Johnson, the manager of Catholic Link’s new English-language site.

He said the site invites visitors to “discover the truths of the faith that are literally all around them” that speak to them through sports, music, school, friendship or at Church.

“We try to express this through the diversity of subjects, tones, and sources of our videos,” said Johnson, who is an American student of philosophy and theology in Rome.

The site collects various streaming videos from sites like YouTube and offers commentaries and interpretations. The site suggests how the videos can be used for Catholic ministry.

Categories include videos about Jesus, the Catholic Church and the Catholic faith, as well as Christian life and family. Other topics include faith and science, pro-life issues, apologetics, recommended movies, music and art, and humorous videos.

Mauricio Artieda, a Peruvian communications major studying in Rome, founded Catholic Link in its first Spanish-language version. He said it began “very quietly” in a blog format.

“Very rapidly, many seminarians, catechists, consecrated men and women and people generally involved in the apostolate (the majority being younger) started to write to us saying that they were using our videos and that the page was helping them a lot in their apostolate,” Artieda said.

The Spanish-language site began last year, while the English-language version is less than a month old. Johnson voiced great hopes for the site.

“My hope, above all, is that Catholics, and especially the youth, will realize the possibilities of evangelization that are out there when you join together a spirit of initiative and prayer,” he said.

Catholic Link’s English-language website can be found at: en.catholic-link.com.
