CHURCH AND INTERNET: MGR. DI FALCO (CEEM), "THERE ARE PEOPLE IN SERACH" ON THE WEB

"What happens now with the Internet is like what happened once with the press. Even the Church is challenged by a technological revolution, which is actually a cultural revolution in that technology is bringing about deep changes in both people’s behaviour and the Church’s way of living. We cannot disregard it. We are called to pay the utmost attention to the signs of the times", said Mgr Michel Leandri-Di Falco, president of the European Bishops’ Commission for the Media (CEEM), at the end of the meeting of the above-mentioned Commission which came to an end yesterday at the Vatican with the Pope’s greetings and thanks after the Angelus prayer. "Having at heart the evangelising mission of the Church, we wanted to listen to experts of international renown to gain a better understanding of the different aspects of this phenomenon and reflect on the risks and opportunities of the Internet. Even on this extraordinary network, – added the bishop – there are people in search, although navigation can be confusing and contradictory at times. The Church feels it is her responsibility to be present with her message, her proposal and her witness. It is a challenging and fascinating adventure that demands knowledge and skills so as to give people the chance to encounter the Word even online". (continued) ” ” ” “
