Having a Catholic presence online isn’t enough for effective evangelization, the Vatican said.
The Church must develop “a new way of thinking” in order to find ways that engage and help people meet Christ, it said.
The Pontifical Council for Social Communications announced Sept. 29 that Pope Benedict had chosen Social Networks: Portals of Truth and Faith; New Spaces for Evangelization as the theme for World Communications Day 2013.
The pope chose the theme in the context of the Year of Faith and amid fresh calls for launching a new evangelization.
The Church needs to ask: Can technology and digital environments “help men and women meet Christ in faith?” the announcement said.
