Watching Sunday Mass online and live is an alternative during the social isolation promoted to contain the transmission of the new coronavirus. The measure caused the Catholic churches to cancel the Eucharistic celebrations with the presence of the public, to avoid physical contact between the faithful. However, masses continue to be celebrated normally in parishes, behind closed doors. To take a moment of faith to the Christians who are at home, some religious TV stations are broadcasting the celebrations live over the Internet at different times, such as TV Cano Nova, TV Aparecida and Rede Vida.
