Catholic Bytes launches new content for understanding the Jubilee of Mercy

Catholic Bytes is a podcast dedicated to faith-based topics, their latest endeavor offers pilgrims traveling to Rome the opportunity to develop a deeper connection to the Church.  In honor of the Jubilee of Mercy, Catholic Bytes has developed an engaging initiative known as, Misericordia Media. It allows pilgrims the opportunity to reflect more deeply on this years theme of mercy when they walk through the Holy Door.  CECILIA Oâ??REILLY Catholic Bytes, Communications Director "It's beautiful to be in Rome because it is the heart of the Church, so you encounter so many different people from so many different parts of the world and in their churches. So, speaking with them and telling them about the initiative. So, through hearsay and then having them bringing it home and share it with their parishioners or their faithful there.â? Cecilia is the Communications Director for Catholic Bytes, with Misericordia Media being one of its many initiatives. CECILIA Oâ??REILLY Catholic Bytes, Communications Director "We also have a YouTube series that we are going to start, which is similar to the Podcast. We'd like it after a different series, at the end to be a systematic presentation of the faith and they are going to be short five to ten minute videos on different aspects of the faith; whether its morals, dogma, spirituality,etc.â? In response to this, Misericordia Media offers a user-friendly, interactive video and audio guide for pilgrims. The seven-minute audio guide prepares pilgrims to walk through the Holy Door by offering a historical background. The nine-minute video guide presents pilgrims with the opportunity to fully immerse themselves in the experience of the historical and artistic aesthetic of the Basilica. CECILIA Oâ??REILLY Catholic Bytes, Communications Director "It looks like a lot of work ahead. But, a lot of good work because it is work for the Lord, ultimately and opportunities to reach out to the faithful and to share the message.â? Both audio and video guide are offered in Italian, English, Spanish, French, Portuguese, German, and Polish. Most of the content is done by seminarians and priest studying in Rome.  YA Misericordia Media/AA -SV Up:FV
