God is everywhere, even on the blog!

Welcome to my new blog, The Gospel In The Digital Age. I’m very excited about this new way of communicating, and I hope that it will prove to be an effective way for me to not only share what’s on my mind, but also to hear back from you.

First, let me begin with a bit of a confession. I’m really a rookie at all things related to the computer, so I’m going to be getting help having these posted. However, having read the theme for our Holy Father’s next World Communications Day Message, The Priest and Pastoral Ministry in the Digital Age: New Media At the Service of the Word, I thought it was time for me to get involved.
It’s my intention to post new entries whenever possible. I can’t promise daily updates, but if I have an opportunity to visit a parish, school, or Catholic Charities facility that you might like to know about, I’ll share it with you. (For instance, if this blog had been up and running last week, I’d have let you know about my visit to the Catholic Charities Immigration Hotline which is doing outstanding work helping newcomers to this country.) If there’s an interesting article that I come across, I’ll try to post a link to it. Or, if something just strikes me as interesting or thought-provoking that I think you might also like, this blog would be a good way to share it. As you would expect, much of “In The Digital Age” will have to do with the Archdiocese of New York, and the Church Universal. However, from time to time, other matters will surely inspire a blog post as well.
Please bear with me as this effort gets underway. My enthusiasm is genuine and I look forward to having the opportunity to be in regular communication with you.
God bless! Stay tuned! God is everywhere, even on the blog!

    I’m happy you are joining the online community, with God’s blessing we will have much to learn from you. You will reach so many, even beyond your own archdiocese (I’m in Florida).

    I’m glad I can visit your blog because as an employee at a parish in the Milwaukee Archdiocese, I really miss the engaging style of your always “on the mark” “some seed fell on good ground”.

    Congratulations for your enthusiastic entrance into this area, which seems a good way for the sheep to find the pastor, and the pastor the sheep. May your pastorate in New York be long and fruitful!

    Hello Archbirshop Dolan, I watched your interview with Raymond on Worldover and I love you already. You have the appeal of my beloved John Paul II, Mary’s little Lolek. Be Mary’s little Tim. You are loved very much and I offer my suffering for your intentions. Therese

    Hello Your Excellency! As one of your suffragen presbyters, I am delighted to have you as our new Metropolitan leader. Be assured of the many prayers from your upstate faithful. Keep up the great work! maybe the Whispers writer can offer his help to you with your blogging. I am sure he’d be honored! Pax et bonum!

    Dear Archbishop Dolan, I so enjoyed seeing you on the Worldover at WETN. Your joy and love for God shines through in all you say and do. I live in PA and I am privileged to be in Cardinal Rigali’s flock. I consider you and Cardinal Rigali to be the most powerful and loving shepherds in the Church. May God bless you and your new blog ministry and I am looking forward to hearing you say Mass in St.Patrick’s the next time I am in NYC.
