Post Follow the Pope on Twitter for Lent

Some like to give up a favourite food for Lent. Others choose to follow a bible study course. Or commit to helping those less fortunate than themselves. But in our increasingly secular societies, many young people no longer keep the Lenten season in any special way Ė thatís why the Pontifical Council for Social Communications has come up with a new idea to focus hearts and minds on the challenges contained in Pope Benedictís Lenten message for 2012.

Default Re: Follow the Pope on Twitter for Lent

When I saw the headline, I thought they meant that following the Pope's Twitter feed was a Lenten sacrifice.

It was a startling idea.

Fortunately, I was wrong.

I dunno.... I think its good that the Church experiment with social media to see if it can find new ways of reaching out, particularly to the young.
