Pope2You - 'Priests get blogging'

a little mouse sent me a tweet about a telegraph that the Pope is now connected. And just how connected is amazing.... The Vatoican's new website has Facebook YouTube, Pope2you multiplayer (video) iphone app (video, audio & text) , YouTube, flikkr gallery and an amazing participatory photoworld montage of messages of peace (sent in via email) in all the 5 langauages above.

It is a very impressive site: brilliant branding, a model of modern communcations in a world of social networking. It must also have cost a fortune!

Pope tells priests to get blogging

Pope Benedict XVI urged priests to use the internet "astutely" and make the most of opportunities offered by modern technology.

'Priests are thus challenged to proclaim the Gospel by employing the latest generation of audio-visual resources – images, videos, animated features, blogs, websites – which, alongside traditional means, can open up broad new vistas for dialogue, evangelisation and catechesis," he said.

Priests, he said, had to respond to the challenge of "today's cultural shifts" if they wanted to reach young people.

YOU can also follow a blog about the pope's here A blog on our Pope, the new evangelization of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the mission of the Church, and the tyranny of relativism...

But I for one need to get back to my i-phone. Now where is that APP ?
