YouTube Goes Catholic! Videos from Bishops, Priests and the Laity!
YouTube has a wonderful selection of orthodox Catholic content!
Unfortunately, it also has some awful, sacrilegious, foul content -- so I did some very careful searching and sorting, and found the videos below. All of these are from Roman Catholic sources that are faithful and orthodox. Be a thoughtful consumer of Internet content -- be wary of clicking on any of the other videos that YouTube will automatically offer to you -- be discerning and evaluate the source.
The Vatican: http://www.youtube.com/user/vatican Straight from the Vatican to you -- recent statements by Pope Benedict VXI, latest news, Vatican Radio, press releases and more.
