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!

M, Eh

Knights Of Columbus Deep In Eastern Europe

18 Apr

No, Vladimir Putin is not eligible to join because he is Russian Orthodox.
Three of The New Knights Of Columbus Countries used to be behind “The Iron Curtain.”
Two of these nations used to have “S. S. R.”, at the end of their names.
One of the Nations is Catholic via the Byzantine Rite. The other Two Countries are Latin(Roman)Rite in Practice. One of The Nations actually uses the Cyrillic Alphabet.

If you guessed the Nations are Poland, Ukraine and Lithuania, enjoy a glass of Wine for these Three answers. Poland was 1st in 2006. In 2013, Ukraine joined the Knights Of Columbus with Two Councils formed. Recently, Major Archbishop Svitoslav Sevchuk, took his 1st and 2nd Degrees. The Byzantine Rite Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church asked for the Knights Of Columbus, at the 123rd Supreme Council Convention in Chicago, in 2005, in the person of Cardinal Husar, Major Archbishop Emeritus.
Latin Rite Lithuania is next. The Knights Of Columbus have truly become International. Enjoy the Knights Of Columbus International Free Throw Basketball Championship Coverage on Dailymotion, a truly Good, European Service.

M, PGK, Eh!
