View from the choir

I am a Catholic layperson and Secular Franciscan with a sense of humor. After years in the back pew watching, I have moved into the choir. It's nice to see faces instead of the backs of heads. But I still maintain God has a sense of humor - and that we are created in God's image.

The Vatican on You Tube

For an alleged fuddy duddy, Pope Benedict is proving himself as willing as President Barack Obama to use contemporary means to reach out to people.

The latest venture is a Vatican cannel on You Tube. (Just click on the word Vatican in the box above.)

The channel has this description:

This channel offers news coverage of the main activities of the Holy Father Pope Benedict XVI and of relevant Vatican events.It is updated daily.Video images are produced by Centro Televisio Vaticano (CTV), texts by Vatican Radio (RV) and CTV.

This video-news presents the Catholic Church's position regarding the principal issues of the world today.

Links give access to the full and official texts of cited documents.

The stated goal is to reach out to young people - but the channel might be of interest and use for any Catholic.

Check it out.
