Earlier this month, Catholic media professionals held their annual meeting. I was (as you may remember) trying to pull a retreat together, so only today did I come upon a wonderful presentation by Los Angeles Auxiliary Bishop Gabino Zavala on the role of Catholic media in today's world. He didn't just limit himself to official Church media, but also on the role of bloggers ("we [bishops] are very troubled by blogs .... that assume the role of Magisterium") and the role of the bishops themselves (especially what Church media staff members can and cannot expect of the bishops), and asked the media professionals to let the bishops know how they could "do a better job of letting you help us."
And speaking of Catholic media, I was finally (after uncounted attempts) able to get Sr. Julia's book review video together. This was recorded in late May, when she was in town for a meeting. I used a borrowed HD camera to see if I could get better quality (yes), but it sure wasn't intuitive! Anyway, enjoy:
