Travelin' Tuesday~Vatican City, Rome

Welcome to Vatican City, Rome!



Being the month of the Holiest of Holidays
(and having a request for more Italy on Travelin' Tuesdays),
today we are visiting the Vatican.

the Vatican held a conference earlier this year,
inviting priests and bishops from 82 countries for the purpose
of studying and determining the challenges to evangelization
by the Internet's evolution in digital media.

Namely, ways to reach the world's youth through
social networks like Facebook, YouTube and Twitter!

Under the direction of a communication sciences professor
at Milan's Catholic University, bishops and priests
from countries all over the world
surfed the net, reflecting on
"the anthropological implications of these new realities".


The Pope on Twitter? I'd follow that! And I'm not even on Twitter. Yet!

Could be a whole new look inside a previously untouchable world.

Here it is Christmas Eve and I have a pile of things still to do. Before I don my little elf hat and get busy, I wanted to stop by and wish you and yours a very merry Christmas. May this holiday season bring you much joy and laughter. May the gifts you give be received with delight and may you know how very much you are loved. Merry Christmas, my friend.
