Vatican creates Facebook, YouTube pages for beatification of John Paul II

March 14, 2011

The Vatican has launched pages on Facebook and YouTube to help provide information about the beatification of Pope John Paul II.

The Facebook page provides information about the beatification, while the YouTube site offers video clips from important moments in the pontificate of John Paul II. The efforts are organized by Vatican Radio, the Vatican television center, and the Pontifical Council for Social Communications. Father Federico Lombardi, the director of the Vatican press office, said that the goal is “to emit a huge wave of positivity, of friendship, of spiritual values through the open paths of social networks,” as the May 1 date of the beatification approaches.
