i was rather surprised to find this article in a British newspaper. I never thought the old conservative Pope would tell priests to go online and start blogs. I knew the Pope had an I-pod but I had no idea he had any interest for the cyber world.
Pope tells priests to get blogging
Pope Benedict XVI urged priests to use the internet "astutely" and make the most of opportunities offered by modern technology.
"Priests are thus challenged to proclaim the Gospel by employing the latest generation of audio-visual resources – images, videos, animated features, blogs, websites – which, alongside traditional means, can open up broad new vistas for dialogue, evangelisation and catechesis," he said.

The Pope may have gotten the idea from "The Priests" the two Catholic Priests from Northern Ireland who have been number one in the UK charts for weeks on. They have become extremely popular. They have won many music awards and done a number of concerts..
