English Cardinal Takes to Cyberspace to Teach the Faith
Sept 28, 2007
One cardinal is using every avenue of technology available to tell the entire world just what the Catholic Church is really about.

Catholic Information Service for Africa (Nairobi, 28 September 2007) Cardinal Francis Arinze, the prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Sacraments, has his own webcast available on the Internet.

ZENIT reports that the Cardinal Arinze webcast aims at clarifying Church teaching. It is produced by the Ohio-based apostolate for Family Consecration, founded by Jerome Coniker and his wife, Gwen. Gwen's cause for beatification is now being considered.

The site explains: "Just when you'd think the confusion surrounding religion, God or truth is at its highest, we are helped by technology to plug directly into the Vatican where, in a webcast, Cardinal Arinze will tell you just what the Catholic Church really is about and what her true message is on living a joyful and fulfilling life."

Using both podcasting, which is audible, and webcasting, which includes video footage, the 74-year-old cardinal discusses such topics as theology of the body, Benedict XVI's encyclical "Deus Caritas Est," the Second Vatican Council, family, and the liturgy.

Lectures and homilies given by the cardinal over the last several years are also available.
