The Pope Wants Priests To Blog…

The Telegraph’s’ headline says so: Pope tells priests to get blogging.

And so, evidently, it’s true.

The Pope had told priests that they should write blogs and use the internet more, saying they must learn to use new forms of communication to spread the gospel message. In his message for the Roman Catholic Church’s World Day of Communications on Saturday, the Pope, who is 82 and known not to love computers or the internet, acknowledged priests must make the most of the “rich menu of options” offered by new technology.

It’s nice to see the Catholic Church catching up to what we Protestants have been doing for, oh years now.  Protestants: Leading the Way Since 1516 (when Zwingli came to his awareness of the Gospel and began to preach Reform).

    Jim,

    We Catholics have a word for folks like you …. ANATHEMA!

    Consider yourself anathemized.

    Hey Jim, how about this: Protestants: Leading the Way Since 1521 (when both Zwingli and Luther actually stopped getting money from the Pope of Rome)? 😉
