Episode #15 (June 5, 2011): Communications (and other topics), revisited.

Today, we revisit our discussion of communications, since today was the World Communications Day. A few other topics are also thrown into the mix.

See Pope Benedict’s letter regarding the 45th World Communications Day.

We discussed the following:

  • Andy’s answer to the last episode’s question of the week
  • The importance of being prepared when preaching
  • Andy and Jane’s toddler gave us a little intermission… unfortunately, teething does not seem to be very much fun…
  • The challenges facing Elections Canada with respect to the internet, and how those can mirror the Church’s use of new media
  • The May 2 meeting with bloggers in the Vatican
  • The Rapture and media coverage
  • The annual Ottawa March for Life and its media coverage
  • How personal relationships are important, and social media is supposed to support those real-life relationships
  • NBC’s Today Show had a special broadcast from the Vatican (!!)

Song of the Week: The Valley Song by Jars of Clay found on the album Furthermore (2003) in response to the death of a student in Ottawa

Question of the Week: What are some ways you would like to see the internet used, and what would you like to see communicated?

We welcome your input! Please comment below or send us feedback at feedback@hotcupofministry.ca. We can also be found on Facebook facebook.com/hotcupofministry.

  1. Fr. Andrew says:

    You said if anyone wants to help you pack, right? Well, I would like to help, but unfortunately, I cannot. Therefore do I still get the pizza? 😉

    • Andy says:

      Pfft! No! 🙂

      • darryl says:

        Depends… Is Andrew bringing some authentic pizzas from Rome?

      • Fr. Andrew says:

        But you said, “If anyone wants to help, we’ll give them pizza.” I want to help so that means I get pizza! How am I wrong? The fact that I can’t help you because of logistics doesn’t negate my desire to help you. 🙂
