Monsignor Paul Tighe, the secretary of the Pontifical Council for Social Communications, was the keynote speaker at the Catholic New Media Conference in Boston on October 19, 2013. Since his appointment by Pope Benedict XVI in 2007, Monsignor Tighe has been involved in all the major new media initiatives of the Vatican. His presentation was excellent and you can view it below. Please share your thoughts in the comments. Feel free to share this post on your own social networks as well.
Here is one of my convictions that was reinforced in the presentation:
It is very important for those of us in ministry to learn and adapt to this new digital world, realizing that digital technology is not just a means to an end, but it is creating a new environment. Pope Benedict called it the digital continent. Pope Francis calls it the digital arena. [I call it a mission field.] It is where many people are spending a sizable amount of time. If the Church is not present there with them, it is likely that the Church will not be part of the rest of their lives either.
Please share yours.
