Pope Benedict XVI urges priest to Blog!

The 265th Pope of the Catholic church, Pope Benedict XVI, has send out a message to all priests in the Church: “We must blog to proclaim the gospel”.

“New Challenges face the Catholic Church an we must spread the gospel by the modern tools available to us”, according to Pope Benedict in a message using the YouTube ChanneliPhone Apps a blog (pope2you) and yes even a Facebook account. Twitter is still absent from the Vatican’s social list but we expect that soon the religious tweets will be flying back and forth as well.

“Reaching young believers can only be accomplished by being where they spend their time and converse.” according to the Pope’s message. “We must reach out and be multimedia savvy but telling, showing and interacting with our believers”. “We must be present in the world of digital communications as faithful witnesses to the gospel, by employing the latest generation of audio-visual resources” in the Pope’s address.

I wish that many business would be this insightful as the “Holy See” most certainly got his marketing strategy correct.
