.- Led by the Computer Network of the Church in Latin America (RIIAL), the new multimedia Catholic news website www.H2Onews.org has launched its service, providing text, video and audio in eight languages to internet users.

In a recent interview, Archbishop Enrique Planas, who supported the project as head of the Pontifical Council for Social Communications and is the website’s current general coordinator, explained that the new source of Catholic news is “a news agency at the service of television throughout the world,” and that the daily operations are under the management of four Catholic media experts—Jesus Colina of Zenit news, Silvia Costantini,  Miriam Diez i Bosch and Andrea Scorzoni.

Archbishop Planas added that, “This should be a great movement in which television stations are both receivers and broadcasters, such that it constitutes a true network in which the patrimony of each one becomes the patrimony of all.”

“By its nature,” he explained, “in order to be a cooperative movement, each one of the members should contribute what it can.”

Archbishop Planas stressed that while the new service is being offered in close collaboration with the Zenit news agency, “these are two autonomous entities, united above all by the same spirit of balance, serious reporting and a spirit of service to the People of God.”

The site is still in its beta format but directors of the new service said they will soon be ready to launch all of their resources.
