Having the Gospel reach young people can be a daunting task, especially when competing against all the noise and conflicting messages out there. 

That is exactly why seminarians in the International College of Legionaries of Christ in Rome started a YouTube channel. “Hablando en Cristiano” literally meaning “Speaking in Christian,” is a platform to discuss popular culture using a relatable Christian lens.

 “We realized that yes, the messages we want to share are beautiful, but we are speaking in different languages. In the past, great missionaries reached communities and translated the bible into Nahuatl or whichever the tribe or civilization's language was. Today, young people aren't speaking Nahuatl or Scandinavian, they speak Marvel and Netflix.”

The channel covers a breadth of topics ranging from superhero movies to modern love. Each host provides his own connections to the Gospel by choosing the areas that interest him. 

They chose this platform because they believe social media is the way new generations can continue spreading and receiving the word of God.

“Imagine if St. Paul had instead of a pulpit to preach to 30 people, a platform to access 3 thousand, 30 thousand, or 3 million. '

'Obviously he would have used it. Which is to say, if an apostle really feels that the Truth burns inside him, he would go to where he could reach the most people. You would do that because you believe in the message and you want it to reach more people. Social media, to us, is the best tool we have today to do exactly that.”

Their team is growing and their following is too. With weekly videos “Hablando en Cristiano” is sure to cover topics like music, movies and the meaning of life.
