· A conversation with Archbishop Celli on the eve of the presentation of the Message for World Communications Day ·
As the first disciples were sent to traverse the tortuous roads of world unknown, far from God, dominated by idolatry and by a malevolent reasoning, thus today new apostles are sent on the trails of the digital world. It is largely a world yet to be discovered, it knows about God – but often tends to disavow him – or at least it keeps him far from its horizons, withdrawn into itself as it is and with a marked tendency for “a technological Prometheism”. Archbishop Claudio Maria Celli cites the Pope's words to the Plenary Meeting of Cor Unum to explain – in an interview with our newspaper on the eve of the presentation of the Holy Father's Message for the World Day of Social Communications – Benedict XVI's resolute decision to enter the world of the Internet – perhaps too hastily labelled virtual – in order to render it more human and to seize the opportunities to transform it “into an agora of the Third Millennium where the Words of the Gospel will resonate”.
