Pope Benedict has told priests that they need to learn and make use of new technologies to spread the gospel message.
The 82-year-old pope who isn't known for his love of computers was adament that priests should use modern communications technologies. "Priests are thus challenged to proclaim the Gospel by employing the latest generation of audiovisual resources -- images, videos, animated features, blogs, websites -- which, alongside traditional means, can open up broad new vistas for dialogue, evangelization and catechesis," he announced.
In his message for the Roman Catholic Church's World Day of Communications, the pope, who is 82 and known not to love computers or the internet, acknowledged priests must make the most of the "rich menu of options" offered by new technology.
