communicating in 2013

Oct 22, 2013

If you are reading this, you are a user of modern digital social networks. Some of us operate websites and blogs. We all surf the net and all of us send emails. The Church has always been at the leading edge of communication advances. It was the Church who first embraced the printed word at the invention of the printing press.

A number of times in the last few years popes have encouraged Christians to use modern communication technologies in ways that enhance the faith of all people. Pope Benedict’s message for this year’s World Communications Day wrote:

“Believers are increasingly aware that, unless the Good News is made known also in the digital world, it may be absent in the experience of many people for whom this existential space is important. The digital environment is not a parallel or purely virtual world, but is part of the daily experience of many people, especially the young.

Pope Benedict’s World Communications Day messages are now collected and published free for Kindle, and as PDF.  You can get more information at this link:
