Catholics and Media

Catholics are blessed to have truly terrific media in a time when media seems to have lost its way. But too many Catholics still haven’t tapped into the great harvest of reliable information available to them right now. Let’s talk …

QUICK OVERVIEW …

The last time we checked, EWTN was still the largest Christian broadcasting network in the world. And Catholic TV, located in Boston, really rocks! Catholic radio is awesome too.

Just about every diocese in America has its own newspaper. And Catholics are blessed with many, amazing publishing houses like Ave Maria Press, Ascension, the Paulines, Tan, Ignatius, and others (so sorry if we left your name out — no offense intended).

Social media has just about every kind of channel available to answer nearly any question a Catholic might have. If you’re Catholic and confused in any way about media, turn off the mainstream circus for awhile and focus on Catholic media. It is not an exaggeration to say that it will change your life.

THE BIG DIFFERENCE …

Unlike much of mainstream media, Catholic media does not pander to fear mongerIng, divisiveness, and hate. One thing that makes Catholic media so great is that, on the whole, they have not sold out for money. Their audience is not for sale the way social media and others sell access to you. Most Catholic media is listener (viewer, reader, etc.) supported, so you get a clear perspective of the world with Christ at the center of life.

EXHORTATION …

If you’re feeling yourself getting caught up emotionally, it’s time to change the channel. Or maybe you’d rather turn on the radio — Catholic , of course! Opening a good book from a Catholic publishing house is a great idea too. Whatever you do, if you’re like so many others, it’s time to quit supporting media that is ungodly in its tone and messaging!

By the way, if you’re not yet a fan of any particular Catholic media outlet yet, this week would be a perfect time to begin exploring!

It’s cool to be Catholic! COOL2B!

In Christ!
