I’m relieved to announce that there will be no catholicsensibility.catholic. Very relieved.
That much-coveted suffix will be for Catholic organizations only, not bloggers or other individuals.
In the case of “.catholic,” individuals — whether religious bloggers or a cleric — will not have access, according to Monsignor Paul Tighe, secretary of the Vatican’s social communications council.
That extension will be reserved for church institutions such as dioceses, parishes, religious orders, schools, universities or hospitals. Use of the domain, Tighe said, will be a guarantee that a site is “authentically Catholic.”
I think it would be delicious for, say, the LCWR to get dot-Catholic and “faithful” individual bloggers to be left out.
I do suspect there will be some kind of official vetting. The department reponsible won’t be the CDF but the dicastery for social communications.
