Los Angeles, Calif., Jun 30, 2016 / 08:02 am
The Los Angeles archdiocese is set to launch a new media platform called Angelus News, and it looks to California's sainted missionary priest for inspiration.
"Following on the footsteps of St. Junípero Serra, a man of heroic virtue and holiness who had only one burning ambition – to bring the good news of Jesus Christ to the peoples of the New World – we now need to send missionaries to proclaim the Gospel in this new digital era," Archbishop José Gomez said June 29.
He reflected that the Gospel's message never changes, but Christians "need to always be looking for the 'language' that best communicates our Lord's saving truths."
The new multimedia platform will include news about the archdiocese's scores of parishes, schools, and ministries. Its international news coverage will be provided through a partnership with Catholic News Agency.
