About Awit at Papuri

by Jeric Pena

“Go into all the world and preach the Gospel to the whole creation.” (Mk 16:15)

The AWIT at PAPURI (Psalms and Praises) Podcast features the Word of God (Ang Salita ng Diyos) according to the liturgical calendar of the Roman Catholic Church.

This podcast, brought to you by Awit at Papuri Communications, aims to proclaim the Word of God to Filipino Catholics all over the word.

This production is Awit at Papuri Communications’ response to Pope Benedict XVI’s call that “we must sail on the digital sea” and “give soul” to the Internet.

“Without fear we must set sail on the digital sea facing into the deep with the same passion that has governed the ship of the Church for two thousand years. Rather than for, albeit necessary, technical resources, we want to qualify ourselves by living in the digital world with a believer’s heart, helping to give a soul to the Internet’s incessant flow of communication,” Pope Benedict XVI said in his address during the Italian Bishops Conference, “Digital Witness” held last April 24, 2010.

The Philippines boasts itself as the only predominantly Catholic country in Asia. However, we at Awit at Papuri Communications have realized that there is currently a dearth of Catholic content in the Filipino language available online.

Awit at Papuri Communications aims to provide high-quality Catholic content including liturgical aids in the Filipino language to Filipinos worldwide via the Internet.

The prayer intention of the Holy Father for January 2010 was that “young people may learn to use modern means of social communication for their personal growth and to better prepare themselves to serve society.”

In his address to the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines during its Ad Limina Apostolorum visit last November 29, 2010, the Holy Father has also asked the Catholic laity proficient in social communications to “take their proper place in proposing the Christian message in a convincing and attractive way.”

This podcast does not aim to replace the Liturgy of Word in the Eucharist; instead, this online project aims to allow the faithful to have a deeper understanding of the Word of God.

Awit at Papuri Communications was launched November 21, 2010.
