Fervorino is an Italian word that means a quick exhortation or pep talk. In the church, it's often used to signify a short sermon - words of inspiration to get you thinking about Jesus.
Thérèse Bermpohl, director of the Office for Family Life, had an idea for a way to reach busy people who may not have a great deal of time to pray, but want a connection to the weekly Gospel readings. Her "fervorinos" are short, online videos called "2minutes2virtue." They will be reflections on the Sunday readings, and will challenge people to practice a virtue in their daily lives.
Bermpohl said the videos are not a replacement for Mass and the Gospel, but a complement, because the message of Jesus is important.
"If you want to change the world, you need to know Jesus," she said.
