Synod of Bishops 2018: A special series of videos to binge-watch

PAPIEŻ FRANCISZEK

REPORTER

Aleteia - published on 06/06/18

Sponsored by the Synod of Bishops, Aleteia and TeleMATER partnered to make it happen!

“What makes you happy?” “What is family for you?” “Who is God for you?”…

These are some of the questions that Pope Francis has addressed to the young people of the world in preparation for the Synod of Bishops that will focus on young people and vocation. The synod will be held in the Vatican in October of this year.

In this context, and with the support of the Secretariat of the Synod of Bishops, the Catholic network Aleteia, in collaboration with Catholic web TV TeleMATER—based in New York—is launching a web series that gives a voice to young people and their answers to the pope’s questions.

Some dioceses are also actively collaborating with the project, particularly that of Acireale, Italy.

Often, it is young people asking Pope Francis questions, at encounters with him during his apostolic journeys, or on occasions such as special conferences or audiences. Now, social networks make it possible to give a face and a voice to young people’s answers to the Holy Father.

Every month, from now until October, two video episodes will be released on a specific subject. The first speaks about the question closest to the heart of young people: happiness.

In following months, the videos will address politics, life decisions, God and Jesus, the Church, the family…

The episodes of the web series will be posted on the websites of Aleteia (www.aleteia.org) and TeleMATER (www.telemater.org) and on their respective social media accounts, and on the official page of the Synod of Bishops (http://www.synod2018.va).

The official hashtag of the Synod of Bishops on Youth, #Synod2018, will enable you to participate in this initiative. Participation is open to all young people, who can send their answers to the pope through a brief video to the email video@aleteia.org
