"The Vatican's official Facebook application -Pope2You- which allows
users to receive the latest messages and photos of Pope Benedict VXI,
as well as to send virtual postcards to friends is English, Spanish,
French, German and Italian. Whatever happened to Latin? The Vatican
has also launched a Youtube channel with videos of the Pontiff.
Google, who owns Youtube, is working in association with the Vatican
Television Center and Vatican Radio on this venture. In WikiCath, the
official Catholic wikipedia application, young people are invited to
connect with their Pope under the slogan of 'New technology, New
Let's read the Pope's Message together.
The Pope has written to young people in a special way in his
Message for the 43rd World Day of Communication.
The application WIKICATH lets us read the message in a new way,
interactive and hypertext, through a platform built in the WIKI style.
WIKICATH has the commentary to the Pope's Message and the deeper
key concepts contained in Benedict XVI's text.
WIKICATH can be a useful tool for the personal reading of the
Message and a supplement for the pastoral care in Christian
Alas. If only it were named 'CathWik'.
(#wikipedia notes with its signature low humor that in WikiCath, one
sees in the URLs not 'Page's but 'Pagina's.)
