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!
