Pray With the Pope
Wed, 08-14-2013 - 2:53pm

The Vatican launched it's official website PraywiththePope about a month ago and I am just trying to see what everyone's thoughts are on the issue. I think this action is an attempt to connect with the younger generation in the way that is most popular nowadays, the Internet. Kids these days are less interested in practicing their faith than their parents were just one generation ago and the Catholic Church is simply trying to inspire them to become more spiritually active. Do you think this will work?

Can't hurt. It's about time the Church started using social media.

I'm not Catholic, but I think it's a great idea. I hope it works!

To each his/her own.  One cannot fault the Church for getting on the "internet" bandwagon. However, it will not accomplish much.

This website was created on October 17, 2012 and is registered in the state of Florida.  It would need backing from EWTN and others in order to spread.  Aside from that, I'm a bit skeptical of any Christian website that pops up and asks participants to purchase a medallion in order to further their cause.
