Spread the Gospel through cyberspace, Pope urges

May 20, 2009

Pope Benedict XVI has encouraged all Catholics-- but especially young people-- to put modern means of communication to their best use in spreading the Gospel. "The new technologies have brought about fundamental shifts in the ways in which news and information are disseminated and in how people communicate and relate to each other," the Pope observed, as he called attention to the May 24 observance of the World Day for Communications. "Employ these new technologies to make the Gospel known, so that the Good News of God's infinite love for all people, will resound in new ways across our increasingly technological world!" The Pope added an appeal to "all those who access cyberspace to be careful to maintain and promote a culture of respect, dialogue and authentic friendship."
