"New technologies, new relationships: Promoting a culture of respect, dialogue and friendship". This is the theme of the message for the World Day of Communications announced by the Vatican during a press conference today. The new initiative of Vatican Radio, the Vatican Television Center and Google Italia was presented, bringing brief clips on the Pope and his activities to be aired on YouTube, beginning today. In his message, the Holy Father stressed the great potential for openness to the world, to dialogue and communication that electronic technology can achieve. The new digital arena makes it possible to meet and learn the values and traditions of others. For such meetings to be fruitful, however, requires honest and correct means of expression, along with a disposition to attentive and respectful listening. We must not let ourselves be taken advantage of by those simply seeking consumers in a market of undiscerned possibilities, where subjective experience overrides the truth. Benedict XVI addressed young Catholics in particular, as the leaders in bringing the testimony of faith to the digital world.
