Manila, Philippines, Nov 26, 2013 / 13:28 pm
A youth symposium on social media in the Philippines highlighted the call of the new evangelization to explore digital means of sharing the Gospel.
"If we are to share the Good News with our brothers and sisters in the 'digital continent,' we must speak a 'language' they can understand and be present as authentic witnesses to our faith," said Msgr. Paul Tighe, secretary of the Vatican's Pontifical Commission on Social Communication.
Msgr. Tighe delivered the keynote address at the Philippines' Catholic Social Media Summit, held at Colegio de San Juan de Letran in Intramuros, Manila from Nov. 23-24.
The event, organized by Youth Pinoy in collaboration with the Episcopal Commission on Youth and the Bishops' Conference of the Philippines, drew more than 400 participants from across the country.
