Pope Francis: No people is criminal and no religion is terrorist

February 17, 2017. Pope Francis has sent an important message to the Meetings of Popular Movements that is taking place in Modesto (California). The pope denounces the "moral blindness of this indifference”: "under the guise of what is politically correct or ideologically fashionable, one looks at those who suffer without touching them. But they are televised live; they are talked about in euphemisms and with apparent tolerance, but nothing is done systematically to heal the social wounds or to confront the structures that leave so many brothers and sisters by the wayside”.

"The fundamental thing are the people behind all this.  If these people really feel the responsibility to spread the Gospel through the web, it can turn into a real opportunity to evangelize. The Internet is a great way to carry this out, but the ultimate goal is Christ.”

Hundreds of priests and lay people have opted to use the web to speak about God. There are thousands of blogs and websites that focus on  faith and religion.  Father Antonio Montero has managed a website for years, publishing stories related to his diocese in Spain.

"The Church has the biggest and the best message to communicate, and it has been doing so for the last 2000 years. The Church spreads that message in a way that's faithful to the Gospel. One has to be open to new technologies and new media in order to effectively reach more people.”

Benedict XVI said that combining silence and words are essential, since journalists must first, truly listen and absorb information before communicating it to others.

That's a message priest Juan Antonio Ruiz knows all too well. Anytime he blogs, his goal is clear: To lead people to God.

"Every time I send a 'tweet', every time I write something, I say  'Well, Lord, may this reach as many people as possible'. As Catholic communicators, I think silence is essential because it helps us find ourselves. It helps us find God within us. So when you type something or communicate something, it's not you who is saying something, but rather God speaking through you.”

So with the power of technology now several priests and lay people are taking their message to the web, whether it's through websites, blogs or social networks. It's not an easy task, but they say, it's well worth it.
