Just read the Popes article on The Priest and Pastoral Ministry in a Digital World: New Media at the Service of the Word.
I found it very interesting. It says "Priests are thus challenged to proclaim the Gospel by employing the latest generation of audiovisual resources (images, videos, animated features, blogs, websites) which, alongside traditional means, can open up broad new vistas for dialogue, evangelization and catechesis.

I regularly use the Iconograms greeting card service of the Greek Orthodox web site to remind parishioners of upcoming Festivals, particularly those falling on weekdays, such as the Presentation/Meeting tomorrow.

I'm moving this to evangelization, since I think it speaks to a vital area of need there which we've explored on several occasions and need to develop even further.

Steve,

Can you give us a link to the message?

Many years,

Neil
