Pope Wants Priests to Blog

We here at the Academy are happy to report that the holy father, Pope Benedict XVI, is asking priests to get involved in modern communications, including blogging.  In his message for the 44th World Day of Communications, the pope said that :
The spread of multimedia communications and its rich "menu of
options" might make us think it sufficient simply to be present on
the Web, or to see it only as a space to be filled. Yet priests can
rightly be expected to be present in the world of digital
communications as faithful witnesses to the Gospel, exercising their
proper role as leaders of communities which increasingly express
themselves with the different "voices" provided by the digital
marketplace. Priests are thus challenged to proclaim the Gospel by
employing the latest generation of audiovisual resources (images,
videos, animated features, blogs, websites) which, alongside
traditional means, can open up broad new vistas for dialogue,
evangelization and catechesis.
 The Catholic Jedi Academy is proud to have Father Reynolds, blogging priest, among its "faculty."
