One of the things I so enjoy about the Catholic blogosphere is the variety of ways people use to impart the faith. Sites like the B-Movie Catechism wonderfully combine reviews of cheesy movies with the Catechism and a recent blog I have come across is also quite inventive. Fr. Austin Murphy’s Jesus Goes to Disney World uses film and other cultural sources to show Christ in the modern world.
There is a lot of creativity in the use of media among Catholics that I find entertaining and informative. The Hands and Feet Show Podcast just came out with their 100th show and so I would like to take the time to highlight this podcast. Seven young adults with occasional guests present the faith in quite an enjoyable manner. Each show contains several main segments that include a quick take on the news, Biblelotion – scripture study, Relationships 2.0, and other segments like the occasional Fr. Bagadonuts. One of my favorite bits that they do is a take off Budweiser’s "Real American Heroes" that never fails to crack me up. The banter among this group is fun along with all of the various bits they come up with. What makes the show exceptional is that you have a group of young Catholics living the faith and teaching it with no watering down of doctrine. They have had many excellent shows discussing the faith that presents so-called hot-button issues in a way that brings the Catechism alive in the modern world without compromise. So congrats to the crew of the Hands and Feet show for their great show.
