About Awit at Papuri

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

Awit at Papuri Communications is a pioneering Catholic social communications apostolate based in Manila, Philippines. Awit at Papuri has been in the service of the Church and the faithful since November 21, 2010.

The Awit at Papuri (Psalms and Praises) Website and Podcast feature the Word of God (Ang Salita ng Diyos) according to the liturgical calendar of the Roman Catholic Church.

This podcast and website, brought to you by Awit at Papuri Communications, aim 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.

Awit at Papuri Communications aims to provide relevant 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 and website do 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 and enhance their participation in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.

Awit at Papuri Communications was launched November 21, 2010.
