Spread the Word over the Internet, pope urges youth


VATICAN CITY: May 20, 2009. (AFP) Cyberspace offers a good forum for spreading Christian teachings, Pope Benedict XVI said Wednesday ahead of the Roman Catholic Church's World Communications Day.

"Young people in particular, I appeal to you (to) bear witnesss to your faith through the digital world," the pope said at his weekly general audience. "Employ these new technologies to make the Gospel known, so that the Good News of God's infinite love for all people will resound in new ways across our increasingly technological world." The Church established World Communications Day in 1963 to draw attention to problems of social communication and extend a hand to the media. From Thursday, a Vatican website, www.pope2you.net, will be linked to the social network Facebook so that young people can send the pope's message to their friends. The pope's message for World Communications Day, which falls on Sunday, is also to be carried on a site dubbed "Wikicath" which is fashioned after the grassroots online encylopaedia Wikipedia.
