Before you get worried, let me just say that, no, I'm not suggesting we imitate Judas' behavior. Even though Judas' betrayal of Jesus played an essential role in the fulfillment of Scripture, Jesus is pretty clear in the Gospel reading at today's Mass that "it would be better for that man if he had never been born."

Here at the CatholicTV Network we know a lot about video. About 40% of our on-air programming is produced right here in our Watertown, Massachusetts based studios. Our intent is for the programs to be seen on TV, but today’s viewers are using handheld devices to watch what they want to watch, when they want to watch it.
We are excited to include a weekly post on media in The CatholicTV Network blog, which will be published on Mondays. Media Monday joins such impressive and alliterative features as Wisdom Wednesday and Faith Friday.
The goal of the Media Monday post is:

The souls of the righteous are in the hand of God,
and no torment shall touch them.
