Digital media seminar for Middle East prelates

Catholic World News - April 02, 2012

The Pontifical Council for Social Communications is sponsoring a seminar on digital media for Middle Eastern bishops from April 17-20 in Beirut. Over four dozen bishops, joined by 20 priests, are expected to attend.

“We think one of the more important challenges that the Church has to face in this moment is how to have a real, concrete dialogue with the digital culture … especially the young generations, because these young generations are involved in the digital culture,” said Archbishop Claudio Maria Celli, the pontifical council’s president. “It’s their way of living.”

“We have to announce the Gospel because this is the perennial message of the Church: the Gospel of Jesus,” he added. “And we think that we have to announce the Gospel using languages, a language that our people today can understand--and this is a real challenge for the Church today, and we are invited not to lose time.”

The pontifical council sponsored a similar seminar in Brazil last year.
