The World Youth Days, which took place in Panama in January, were technologically marked by the moment when Pope Francis in St. Peter's Square, in the Vatican, announced that he created his user account on Click To Pray.
Pope Francis uses a tablet and says
“The network can help us to pray together. Therefore, I would like to present the official application of the Pope's Worldwide Prayer Network: 'Click To Pray' ”.
This was undoubtedly a historic moment, as it shows how important online presence is for the Church today.
The Click To Pray App was undoubtedly a novelty that the Pope's Worldwide Prayer Network gave the Church and, being assumed by the Pope as a fundamental vehicle for Prayer today, clearly shows how technology is an integral part of all of us.
He took the opportunity and also remembered that he would soon publish the Message for the World Day of Social Communications, which happened on the 24th of January (read here).
From this text, we transcribe this excerpt in particular:
From «like» to «amen»
“The image of the body and the members reminds us that the use of the social web is complementary to the encounter in the flesh, experienced through the body, the heart, the eyes, the contemplation, the breathing of the other. If the net is used as an extension or expectation of such an encounter, then it does not betray itself and remains a resource for communion. If a family uses the network to be more connected, to later find themselves at the table and look each other in the eye, then it is a resource. If an ecclesial community coordinates its activity through the network, to later celebrate the Eucharist together, then it is a resource. If the network is an opportunity to get closer to cases and experiences of kindness or suffering physically distant from me, to pray together and, together, to seek the good in discovering what unites us, then it is a resource.
Thus, we can move from diagnosis to therapy: opening the way for dialogue, meeting, smiling, caring ... This is the network we want: a network made, not to capture, but to liberate, to preserve a community of free people . The Church itself is a network woven by the Eucharistic Communion, where the union is not based on tastes ["like"], but in fact, on the "amen" with which each adheres to the Body of Christ, welcoming others. "
Looking at these two great moments of communication, communion and community it is easy to see that the future always passes through people and going to meet them is a fundamental part of the Church.
