Areopagus of Our Time

Areopagus of Our Time

Archbishop John Foley, president of the Pontifical Council for Social Communications, told:

 

"The Internet can be a new path to God, a call to the Church to question itself on the opportunities offered by the new media to inform, educate, pray and evangelize, to take the Word of God everywhere, to reach also those who live in solitude and who perhaps would never open the door to their home."

 

"The Church, as transmitter of the Revelation of God, has the task to communicate the Word and must encourage the use of Internet for the common good, the development of peace and justice, in respect of personal dignity and with a spirit of solidarity."

 

"Internet is the Areopagus of our time, the instrument to spread the Christian message."

 

"Yes, God can be found on the network. And among the millions of people who surf the Internet every day, many may find words of hope, come across other cultural and spiritual experiences, bringing down ideological barriers to discover new horizons."

 

"It is impossible to remain with one’s arms crossed contemplating this world that changes so rapidly; it is necessary to remember that God’s voice can be raised above many other voices, as he has always spoken to man and tries to reach him with all possible means, at times unimaginable."

 

(June 10, 2005 - a meeting in Rome on "Internet and the Catholic Church in Europe," organized by the Council of European Bishops’ Conferences)
