“Let our communication be a balm which relieves pain
and a fine wine which gladdens hearts.” – Pope Francis

Hello. My name is Angela Sealana.  Someone once wrote me, “You are a jewel in this world – a beautiful reflection of Christ’s love. In your gentle way, you change lives by simply being present. You are intelligent, creative, and wise.”  … On the flip side, people often tell me that I remind them of Daria.

Me & Catholic Media

Under my maiden name, Angela Santana, I ran angelus.tuus—one of the first digital apostolates providing graphic & web design services to Catholic organizations.  My interest in serving the Church through media flourished in my late teens; I networked with likeminded folks and blogged my fledgling insights.

In college, I wrote a groundbreaking thesis, New Media, New Evangelization, which helped inspire Brandon Vogt’s groundbreaking book, The Church and New Media.

Since 2010, I’ve been working full-time in media & ministry for a Catholic evangelization apostolate in San Antonio, Texas.  Whenever possible, I enjoy mentoring students through the internship program which I spearheaded.

I’m glad to welcome you here. Please enjoy this collection. Peace to you.

  1. Hello Angela, I am a Dominican student brother studying for the priesthood. I am also currently in a preaching class on preaching in the “New Media.” And the professor assigned your undergraduate thesis as one of our readings. I found it very well done, and we had a pretty good conversation about it in class. Just thought you should know.

    • Brother Jude, thank you so very much for sharing this news! I am humbled. God be praised (!) that my work has contributed to the formation of Dominicans. May He bless you abundantly as you continue your studies, Brother.
