CNA launches blog in time for papal conclave

.- Catholic News Agency is announcing the launch of its new blog on March 1, in time to provide enhanced coverage of the papal conclave that will elect the new Pope, as well as future Church news.

The blog can be accessed at catholicnewsagency.com/blog.

“We are thrilled to announce the launch of our blog in what could be called the most exciting time for the Church in modern history,” said CNA managing editor Marianne Medlin.

“Our blog contributors’ diverse backgrounds, sheer talent and ardent love for the Church will provide invaluable commentary and take full advantage of modern communication methods to further the Gospel message,” she said.

“This blog represents the latest step in CNA’s ongoing commitment to providing Catholic news in keeping with the New Evangelization envisioned by Blessed Pope John Paul II and espoused by Pope Benedict XVI.”

The new blog will seek to provide thoughtful commentary on contemporary issues facing the Church, as well as pictures, graphics and other additional content. Catholic News Agency’s contributing bloggers come from various backgrounds and bring with them a wide range of interests and expertise.
