When I worked in the PCED, frustrated with the resistance to any new tech, I developed the phrase, “Here in the Vatican we update our equipment every 50 years, whether it needs it or not.”
I note with apprehensive amusement a piece at Crux entitled
Synod tiptoes into digital age, but are bishops thinking big enough?
After the way the last Synod (“walking together”) was rigged, who can tell what “digital” and “big enough” might entail?
I am skeptical that they will be able to organize and implement any tech more complicated than a bird cage.
In any event, as Zuhlio sang during the last goat rodeo there will still be Fifty Ways To Rig A Synod.
