  1. Haha! April fools,in May…this coming from the 30,000 feet papacy of awful off the cuff remarks & interviews with communistic atheists…
    How about start with: take social media away from the pope.

  2. We read: ““Instead of focusing on one issue at a time, our continuous partial attention rapidly passes from one topic to the other.”

    And, from yesteryear: “The half-informed man is not the man who knows only the half of things, but the man who only half knows things” (A.D. Sertillanges, O.P., “The Intellectual Life,” 1948).

  3. All of the pastoral reflections on digital communications, primarily the internet for some of us, taken without prejudice are good. Although, two aspects of communication weren’t mentioned, both essential. First is the pursuit of truth. Second, the responsibility Christians have to be critical in analyzing what is proposed both by fellow communicants, and particularly on Catholic websites, the Church and its policies.
    Similar to a good sermon that doesn’t skirt the issues, comments, or better, commentators have a responsibility to learn, teach where applicable, and question. That can’t be pursued following a litany of niceties on getting along for sake of getting along. Pope Francis should be aware of that dimension of our Christian vocation to witness to the truth in season and out of season.

  4. Social media is a gift of nature to humanity. When used judiciously, social media has the potential to build bridges and to bring about an union of hearts and minds among fellow pilgrims on journey.
