Cyberspace Benedict

In 07 Observations on 2011/07/04 at 8:37 PM

The Vatican introduced Portal as a One-Stop Information Site on the 60th anniversary of Pope Benedict’s ordination to the priesthood.  Pope Benedict put it on line with a click.

Vatican officials said on Saturday that Pope Benedict had been following the development of the Portal, which will for the first time aggregate information from the Vatican’s various print, online, radio and television media in a one-stop shop for news about the Holy See.

It is the latest effort by the Vatican to bring its evangelizing message to an Internet-using audience, already having ventured into Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. The Vatican can now reach a wide new audience by interacting with the outside world.

The Portal is available to you in English and will be updated three times every day. In the Portal you will find printed texts of papal homilies, statements and speeches as well as audio and video materials.

The Portal contains no search functions, nor does it offer an obvious link to the Vatican’s main home page, but those may come in an update.
