So I see the pope is promoting the New Media as a tool for evangelization. Good. The bishops laughed at the suggestion back in 2008 that the pope should start a blog. And naturally, St Blog’s sees this as sort of a justification for all the time we spend online. Good, too, I suppose.
But getting back to the New Media, I think the Holy Father could take his own advice. If he did a blog, even if it were just brief transcripts of his addresses or bits and pieces of his books and other writings, he would be seeing hundreds of thousands of hits a day. No priest, not even Father Z, could generate that.
