For one Catholic bishop in Nigeria, social media and family life are two keys for evangelization and sharing the values of the Catholic Church.
"We need to invent new means of forming people's consciences. We need to form new means of confronting the agents of non-values that are among us. We need to form new means of colonizing the media so that people can hear the voice of the Church," said Bishop Emmanuel Adetoyese Badejo of Oyo.
The interview, conducted by Catholic News Agency for Africa, was released after the bishops' conference in Nigeria last week.
Bishop Badejo is the chair of the Pan-African Episcopal Committee of Social Communications and is director of communications for the Catholic Secretariat of Nigeria. This year he is celebrating his 30th year as a priest and 9th year as a bishop.
