Facebook, twitter and blogs, oh my! Thank God for new media!! With the help of these new areas of communication John Paul II’s biblical vision of the human person is fast making it’s way into the hearts and minds of people all over the world.

“New technologies, in particular, create further opportunities for communication understood as a service to the pastoral government and organization of the different tasks of the Christian community. One clear example today is how the Internet not only provides resources for more information, but habituates persons to interactive communication.[9]. Many Christians are already creatively using this instrument, exploring its potential to assist in the tasks of evangelization and education, as well as of internal communication, administration and governance…

If the communications media are a good destined for all humanity, then ever-new means must be found…to make possible a true participation in their management by all. The culture of co-responsibility must be nurtured.” (JP II, Apostolic Letter to Those Responsible for Communications 1/24/05, paragraphs 9 and 11).
