Words of Pope John Paul II yesterday, encouraging the use of the internet to spread the Gospel:
The most recent advancements in communications and information have put the Church in front of previously unheard-of possibilities for evangelization. That is why this year I thought to present a very-current theme: “Internet: A New Forum for Proclaiming the Gospel.”
We must enter into this modern and every more replete communications network with realism and confidence, convinced that, if it is used with competence and conscientious responsibility, it can offer useful opportunities for spreading the Gospel message.
There is no need, therefore, to worry about “putting out to sea” in the vast informational ocean. One can also reach the heart of men and women of the new millennium through the Good News itself.
