A Reading From The Blog According to Luke?
Hey, I wouldn't lie about the Pope - I couldn't handle the guilt!
But seriously, in his message during the Roman Catholic Church's World Day of Communications this past Saturday, the Pope said, "Priests are challenged to proclaim the Gospel by employing the latest generation of audio-visual resources, images, videos, animated features, blogs and websites which alongside traditional means, can open up broad new vistas for dialogue..."
This foward-thinking comes from a man who still writes his speeches by hand and has his assistants surf the web for him. But this is more forward-thinking than I would have ever expected.
When you come to think of it, weren't the Gospels of the apostles very blog-like?
