He underlined Pope Benedict’s call to reach out to the digital generation: “The Pope knows that the Church will be an efficacious presence in the world that is taking shape only to the extent that she succeeds in keeping the truths of the faith in close touch with the emerging culture and the younger, growing generations”. To listen to the Pope’s own message for the occasion – “Bear witness to your faith through the digital world!” – see this YouTube video.
