LearninGod: the challenge of bringing Videocatechism to everyone through the web

In the last edition of the Venice Film Festival, the platform was presented "LearninGod", a digital space created to offer the general public religious, artistic and cultural content inspired by universal sacred messages. 

His first publication is the Videocatechism of the Catholic Church, a 25-hour filming subdivided into 46 episodes. Its director is Gjon Kolndrekaj, and it has been sponsored by the Pontifical Council for the Promotion of the New Evangelization. The filming has required almost six years of work in 70 countries, with filming in a total of 16,000 locations, and the participation of more than 60,000 people. The text of the Catechism is read in 37 different languages.

The work is composed of four parts: The profession of faith; the celebration of the Christian mystery; life in Christ; prayer in the Christian life. The audiobook version for the blind has also been considered. 

“We have the obligation to speak the language of those who listen to us - says Paolo Ruffini, Prefect of the Vatican's Dicastery for Communication - and, therefore, the language of our time. An important obligation, a difficult obligation that challenges us.

Monsignor Francesco Moraglia, Patriarch of Venice, speaks of an "inclusive" Catechism, because "it is filmed among the people, in the streets and in the places of life and work, from hospitals to sports facilities, from kitchens to quarters".

A very valuable resource, which facilitates the approach of the Gospel to young people and of young people to the Gospel.
