Church's reaction?
New Media, New Evangelisation
We as a Church MUST use social media to evangelise.

From Second Vatican Council's, Apostolicam Actuositatem: "[A] true apostle looks for opportunities to announce Christ by words addressed either to non-believers with a view to leading them to faith, or to the faithful with a view to instructing, strengthening, and encouraging them to a more fervent life.
"Will the Church remain silent, or will her voice be proclaimed from the rooftops (and the laptops)? Will she plunge the message of Christ into Facebook feeds, blog posts, podcasts, and text messages, or will she be digitally impotent?"

Brandon Vogt, The Church and New Media.
What does the Catholic Faith mean to YOU?

Between YOU and GOD.

An active faith:
Consistent prayer life
Faith formation & catechesis
Ask questions
Sacraments
Faith
CCC 1814: is the theological virtue by which we believe in God and believe all that he has said and revealed to us... For this reason, the believer seeks to know and do God's will.
CCC 1817: is the theological virtue by which we desire the kingdom of heaven and eternal life as our happiness, placing our trust in Christ's promises and relying not on our own strength, but on the help of the grace of the Holy Spirit.
Do you believe you were made for happiness

God's Promises

A gift

Working towards Heaven
Love
CCC 1822 (Charity): is the theological virtue by which we love God above all things for his own sake, and our neighbour as ourselves for the love of God.

Fruits: joy, peace, mercy.
