The Pope has issued a new commandment to priests: Thou shalt blog – and make animated videos too! His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI advised clerics around the world that using multimedia tools would help read the gospel. (released Vatican 23rd Jan 2010)
The Pope may be 82 years old but he obviously has understood the huge importance of using digital channels for communicating messages. Pope Benedict’s own online activities include a YouTube channel, a website and Pope2You even features a Facebook application that lets you send postcards with photos of Pope Benedict to friends. I’m hoping that me spreading his good news may get me one step closer to the pearly gates in years to come!
