Bishop John C. Wester of Salt Lake City encouraged his fellow bishops to make use of new communications methods in proclaiming the unchanging truths of the Catholic faith.
"The challenges of this moment in communications technology are a boundless opportunity for evangelization," he said, if the bishops are willing to both "speak and listen."
Bishop Wester observed that in an age of significant, rapid and ongoing change, "the world of newspapers has been turned upside down" and new devices are transforming "how we communicate."
"The truth of our faith has not changed," the chairman of the communications committee for the U.S. bishops' conference said. "But the people of our dioceses are living in a new world."
