Catholic News Agency has launched a new initiative on Facebook to share the words, thoughts and teachings of Pope Benedict XVI through a fan page, "Pope Benedictions."
“Pope Benedictions” provides daily posts from the writings, homilies and speeches of the Holy Father.
Facebook users can now read the daily updates on their News Feed when they "like" the fan page. Readers can also share the post with family and friends on Facebook by liking and commenting on the individual updates.
“If you use Facebook like a lot of Catholics do, you'll love to have this kind of resource," said Ursula Murúa, CNA's Administrator for “Pope Benedictions.”
The new fan page is a natural outgrowth of the agency's efforts to join in Pope John Paul II's call for a new evangelization.
"This page is really just a natural extension of the mission and purpose of Catholic News Agency," explained Peter Zelasko, Multimedia Specialist for CNA. "The Holy Father's personal witness is a daily reminder of our faith, even when we're browsing the Internet or interacting with others on Facebook."
