Sister Rose’s blog reaches 500,000 hits today

Since I moved my blog to WordPress on October 5, 2008 I never dreamed of 500.000 hits or page views. In this day of YouTube videos getting a million hits in a day or an hour, this half million in three years eight months, an average of 300 hits a day with 2,900 in one day in 2010, does not seem like much in the virtual scheme of things. Yet it provides me with a motive of thanksgiving for the Internet and the gift of communication between God’s people the world over and who knows? Maybe the universe. (We don’t know who might be listening, do we?)

WordPress sent me an analysis of that best day: March 9, 2010

Thank you for your visit, your time, your interest. Be assured of my prayers.

On Faith and Media

Here’s my new film review video blog on AmericanCatholic.org! 

Sr. Rose finds seeds of the gospel in today’s film scene. In her reviews of both cinema blockbusters and independent films and documentaries, she shares her passion for the best in today’s popular culture.

Faith on Your iPod: Introduction to Media Literacy, Saturday Nov 6, 2010 at LMU

Media literacy education, or media mindfulness, is about learning skills to navigate popular, media culture through the dual lens of faith and critical thinking. Media literacy leads to media mindfulness: thoughtful media choices for intentional living. Media literacy provides a values-based strategy based on social analysis and theological reflection to build character and contribute to culture and vital citizenship. Media literacy education in the faith community explores Church teaching about media and communication and contributes to understanding culture and a multiplicity of meanings in the world of digital story telling.

Sister Rose Pacatte, FSP, is the director of the Pauline Center for Media Studies in Culver City. She is the film/TV columnist for St. Anthony Messenger magazine, and a contributor to the National Catholic Reporter, The Tidings, and ParishWorld.net. Rose is also the award-winning co-author of the Lights, Camera, Faith series on film and scripture, and the co-author, with Sr. Gretchen Hailer, RSHM, of Media Mindfulness: Educating Teens about Faith and Media, and most recently, Our Media World; Teaching Kids K-8 about Faith and Media.

I am the course facilitator for the intro to media literacy course; another fine catechist will facilitate Church and Communication.

If your diocese is a VLCFF Partner (click here to check) the cost for each five week course is only $40.00 (otherwise $75.00).

In terms of time, there are five week-long sessions for each course. On average you would want to reserve one hour a day to complete the work that requires some reading, interactive exchanges, and responses to the reading and each week’s material in semi-essay form. The fruit of your dedication will be renewed energy in your faith life and ministry. And it’s not only what you will learn; your contribution will enliven the interaction and your experience will enrich us all.

The deadline for registration is May 26th. Don’t miss this opportunity! Five weeks goes by so swiftly.

Feel free to contact me here if you have any questions or go directly to the  VLCFF website.
