Catholic-link is a website that provides videos and comments for Catholic apostolate. The initiative seeks to be an appealing and innovative resource for those that are spreading the Gospel, especially with youth. We recognize that Faith isn’t just one aspect of life, one activity on Sunday morning; rather, it is the light that illuminates and enriches every dimension, every worry, every dream, and every moment of every day. In recognizing this, we seek to offer a selection of videos and their accompanying comments that transmit a vision of daily life that is deeply transformed and enriched by the Catholic Faith. Such an approach allows us to discover eloquent expressions of our values dispersed throughout the world of media, whether they are explicitly Catholic or not.
We hope that this project can provide a valuable service to you and your apostolate. If you have any comments, complaints, or recommendations, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
