OUR STORY …

Did you know that the Catholic Church actually has media nuns? It’s true, though the Church does not call them media nuns. They’re actually called the Daughters of St. Paul.

IT IS WRITTEN

In the Bible, Jesus says that the Gospel of the Kingdom of God would go to all nations. It would serve as testimony to all people. And the the Lord would return (Matt 24:14).

Blessed Fr. James Alberione undoubtedly knew this when he began the Pauline Family more than a century ago. The unique feature of the Paulines is a charism or spirituality that embraces media in all its forms to share the Gospel. Long after Blessed Alberione went off to the Lord in heaven, the media has become the most powerful tool available to the Church to carry the Gospel to the world.

LIFE GOES ON …

Today the Daughters of St. Paul and other groups in the Pauline Family serve all around the world. They are well-equipped to evangelize and catechize with media. They also teach others how to use media to glorify God in Christ.

Going forward, you can expect to see a lot of folk art and hear a lot of porch stories about the Paulines. Most are likely to include the media nuns because Catholics really love their religious sisters and brothers.

And you’ll see a lot of Herman Nootks too. He’s a little, orange mouse who serves as the Cathedral mouse in the Chucktown Diocese.
