Aleteia: Where Questions, Faith, and New Media Collide
Aleteia, a new website debuting later this month, will be a welcoming home for those with questions about life and faith. It's a great example of new media being used correctly as it's grounded on conversation. Instead of a repository of Catholic information, the site will be an open dialogue where all truth-seekers are welcome.
"Aleteia comes from the ancient greek word "Aletheia" which means “Truth”.
Aleteia is the first online Q&A community about Faith, life and the Church’s teaching, aiming to provide certified answers from the Source. Real ones, from Rome where laymen, communicators, journalists passionate about questions of Faith are working together.
Created in 2011, Aleteia arises as a concrete response to the challenge proposed by Benedict XVI to announce the Gospel in the New Media.
On aleteia.org, ask questions, get answers, enter conversations about what we believe in, the way we live it. Join the community of seekers of the Truth and be collaborators of it!"
I can't quite determine whose behind the site, but all signs point to someone in Europe (and likely Rome itself). Aleteia.org officially launches on October 31, but in the meantime be sure to follow them on Facebook and Twitter.
