The Holy Land Custody’s Franciscan Media Center has launched a new multi-lingual website to visually tell the story of the Holy Land and to give “voice and visibility” to the local Church and sacred places of Jesus’ homeland.
The center aims to tell “an altogether different story” in contrast to news reports that speak only of “fear, division and conflict.”
The new website, www.fmc-terrasanta.org, is “yet one more way” to bring the Holy Land to “the far corners of the world,” the Franciscan Media Center said March 31.
Among the website’s offerings are news stories, cultural pieces and information about events, pilgrimages, and interreligious dialogue. It contains interviews, documentaries and spirituality columns.
The center offers direct video transmissions of celebrations from the most important sanctuaries in the Holy Land.
Its website will publish video news daily, as well as episodes from the the weekly news program Terra Santa News.
Visitors to the website may read it in Italian, Portuguese, English, French and Spanish. An Arabic-language version will be available soon.
