New webcast proclaims ‘life-giving Word of God’ in Chinese and English

.- A new webcasting endeavor inspired by St. Francis and Venerable Gabriele Allegra is producing Catholic content in both English and Mandarin Chinese to proclaim and celebrate the “life-giving Word of God.”

Based in the Holy Land, the Eternal Light Webcast takes its name from Venerable Gabriele Allegra, a twentieth-century missionary to China whose Chinese name means “eternal light.” The webcast’s internet site quotes Allegra’s 1975 autobiography, in which he said St. Francis of Assisi could not have thought of the possibilities of the printing press, yet the friars should nonetheless study, preach, write and speak through the radio and television today in proclaiming the Word of God.

Venerable Gabriela Allegra himself translated the Bible into Chinese.

At present the webcast effort reproduces several English-language videos of Pope Benedict XVI’s Holy Land visit and presents some written Chinese-language commentary.

The webpage of Eternal Light Webcast is located at http://www.elwebcast.blogspot.com/
