Why Social Media Will Be Crucial Towards Restoration Of The Church

Yesterday's Vortex details the story of how an American in Australia, Nina Jurawicz (herself a Harvard alumnus) kick-started the protest against the Harvard black mass.  Through intelligent use of Facebook, she mobilized the petitions and Eucharistic procession and Holy Hour that finally impelled Harvard to eject the black mass from its campus.

Ladies and gentlemen, if you are reading this blog, you are at least acquainted with the potential that this form of instantaneous communication holds.  I'm aware that some of you may hold social media in disdain.  I strongly suggest that you take any knee-jerk repugnance towards this "newfangled stuff" and banish it to the netherworld from which it originated.  Then decide that you will become proficient at the use of social media with no excuses for failure.  Be inspired by this story and be motivated to use all the tools that God has placed at our disposal.

Looks like people in the Vatican are starting to come down on bloggers and journalists that 'go against the grain' so to speak. I can promise you this; you will absolutely not believe what you are reading. It is .........words really cannot describe. .........BREATHTAKING, I guess is all I can say.
