From the Director
Joyful greetings in Christ,
In the wake of selecting the earthly father of our Church, we couldn't help but notice how the election of The Pope this time around involved a fairly new enthusiast: social media.
While we believe the Holy Spirit will ultimately select the next pope through prayerful discernment at the Conclave, social media has undoubtedly reached the masses during this momentous time for the Church: everything from tweeting Cardinals to a Fantasy Conclave has contributed to a virtual papal madness. Social media has created an increased awareness of the entire process, bringing to light some of the issues at hand and possible candidates, but most importantly, uniting people in prayer around the world.
Below is a short video from Busted Halo on how a new pope is selected... if you haven't seen it, it's well worth the 4 minutes!
May God continue to bless his Church - today, tomorrow and always,
