Take a moment to watch this lovely video of Chiara Lubich's funeral at St. Paul Outside the Wall. 20,000 attended.
Brought to us via a group I'd never heard of before: www.H20news.org.
Bloggers ought to interested in H20news because it "is a Catholic news service on a worldwide scale that creates and distributes multimedia news, every day, in eight languages. The news focuses on the life of the Church and on social and cultural events that directly pertain to Catholics living in the world.
H2onews offers its multimedia services free of charge to Catholic television, web sites and radio stations so that the Pope’s words and news about the Church are available to everyone interested."
H2onews was born during the First World Congress of Catholic Television in Madrid in October 2006, hosted by the Pontifical Council for Social Communications.
Radio stations, TV stations and websites can subscribe to carry their videos and this should make your ears perk up.
According to their website, non-professionals like you and me can function as local stringers in future, creating our own videos of news, and if they are considered newsworthy, they will be translated into 8 languages and distributed via H20news.
A lot of Catholic media organizations, including Vatican TV and Radio, Salt and Light TV, and EWTN, are involved in this new venture and it sounds like a really creative initiative.
So stay tuned to H20 News!
