Portals of Truth and Faith: QOTD (Quote of the Day) from the Vatican

From the statement released 9/29/12 by the Pontifical Council of Social Communications, which has announced the theme for the 47th World Communications Day on May 12, 2013. News to some but not to others, the Vatican has been issuing compelling and prophetic statements about church communications for decades. 

During a time in which technology has emerged as part of the fabric of connectivity of human experiences, such as relationships and knowledge, we need to ask: can it help men and women meet Christ in faith? It is not enough to find an adequate language, but rather, it is necessary to learn how to present the Gospel as the answer to that basic human yearning for meaning and faith, which has already found expression online.
