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. 

«Tenemos la obligación de hablar el idioma de quienes nos escuchan -dice Paolo Ruffini, Prefecto del Dicasterio para la Comunicación del Vaticano- y, por lo tanto, el idioma de nuestro tiempo. Una obligación importante, una obligación difícil que nos desafía».

Monseñor Francesco Moraglia, patriarca de Venecia, habla de un Catecismo «inclusivo», porque «se filma entre la gente, en las calles y en los lugares de vida y de trabajo, desde los hospitales a las instalaciones deportivas, desde las cocinas hasta los cuarteles».

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