It is Time for Catholics To Go Beyond You Tube

20 Apr

Years ago, it was Public Access Cable Channels. Eventually, it was the World Wide Web. Then came Vimeo in 2004, followed by Dailymotion and then You Tube. Then the Smartphone Revolution came and one could send a Video into Cyberspace from that Smartphone. Apple came out with the iPod Touch and iPad.
Then, Live Video Streaming Networks came into being. One can make a Good News Piece on the spot.
The Evangelical Christians are using Live Video Streaming Networks for their Wednesday Night and Sunday Services. I see this all the time on Veetle, Bambuser and Ustream.

I have yet to see Lay Catholics doing this. They usually head to You Tube as a matter of habit, though Vimeo is becoming a destination. On Vimeo, it is artists who comment, not imbecilic types who have trouble spelling a 3 letter word, though they have no trouble with the 4 letter kind.

But, one with a Smartphone and the right app, can broadcast any event imaginable.

On Holy Thursday, portions of The Catholic Mass of The Lord’s Supper, were telecast live from Our Lady Queen Of Martyrs Roman Catholic Church in Forest Hills, Queens, NY, over Veetle, an Easy to use Service. Views were not bad at all.
On Good Friday, Ustream was used to televise the St. Thomas Apostle to Holy Child Jesus Walk. But, Ustream, which the experts say is THE Place to get lots of viewers, only registered 11 Views in 25 Minutes of Transmission. Ustream is actually for the pros at the Traditional Broadcasting Networks, who may carry a story which is intended for web telecast only.
Easter Vigil at Our Lady of Mercy Roman Catholic Church in Forest Hills Queens NY, was carried on Veetle and 31 views were registered. Part of the Tridentine Latin Mass of Easter Sunday, was carried by Veetle, as it handled a weak transmission signal quite well for 14 views in 11 Minutes. The Bambuser Feed failed twice and needs a stronger data signal to handle the transmission.
But two days before Palm Sunday, it handled the telecast of a portion of The Children’s Stations Of The Cross, Live from St. Pancras Roman Catholic Church in Glendale, Queens, NY. It lasted 3 Minutes and 11 Seconds, getting 18 Views.
Those of you who watch “”, the show “Mic’d Up” With Michael Voris, is carried Live on Wednesday Nights, with Live Feed on Livestream. Livestream like Ustream, caters to the Pros.

It is time to “Go Live” & preach the Good News. Many of The services are free. The Results will amaze you. You Tube is “So 2005.”

A Catholic Presence is needed.
You are The Media.

Pax Tecum!
Gloria In Excelsis Deo!

The Parish Pub & The Parish Restaurant

31 Mar

In Pompano Beach, Florida, a Parish called St. Henry, Roman Catholic, has a Parish Owned Private Bar and Restaurant called Henry’s Hideaway. The pub was opened 30 Years Ago by an Interesting Pastor. That Pastor was from a place up in the Northeastern United States. From whence that Pastor came, an NBA Team called the Nets currently play. An NHL Team will be moving into that same facility in that burg. A Major League Baseball Team called the Dodgers used to play there.
OK, the Pastor was originally ordained by Titular Archbishop Thomas Molloy. You, I hope, are getting close to that answer.
Well, if you guessed that the Founder of Henry’s Hideaway is originally from “The Borough of Churches”, which is Brooklyn, you guessed right. That Pastor has both a Business Sense and a Sense of Humor. But the idea of a Catholic Parish of The Roman Rite, does cause for more than a few eyebrows to be raised.
But, the next Parish Owned Restaurant in this Country is in Manhattan’s East Village, where more than a few Ukrainians live.
The small restaurant on East 7th Street is called “Streecha’s”, and serves reasonably priced Ukrainian Food. The restaurant is owned by St. George Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church on East 7th Street. It is Home Cooked Ukrainian Food. 
It is plain but good wholesome fare, which won’t bust your budget. And you actually get to meet Ukrainian Expatriates. The place is not fancy. It is not meant to be. It is meant to enjoy food and people.

I think that I may stop there on Saturday. I like trying new things. And it is for a great cause called the Byzantine Rite Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church, a true underdog we can all get behind to root for versus Russia.

Pray Hard For Ukraine.
In Nomini Patris, Et Filli, Et Spiritu Sancti, Amen!
