I have some fun stories about trying to some modern technology working in the offices of the Pontifical Commission "Ecclesia Dei". That’s where the phrase: "In the Vatican equipment is updated every 75 years, whether it needs to be or not", arose. And the great battle cry was ever to be heard: "Yesterday’s technology tomorrow!".
This is where carbon paper was still being used in the Vatican Bank into the early 90’s.
I am now, therefore, quadrupally pleased to let you know that the Pontifical Commission "Ecclesia Dei" has…
…. I don’t know if I can get this out….
… oh the emotion…
I am not surprised, in some ways.
The Cardinal President when he was still Prefect at Clergy had that Congregation build a website quite apart from those visionaries of the Vatican’s internet offices or the forward-thinkers of the Secretariat of State, etc. I believe
Card. Castrillon is one of those curial prelates who "gets it".
Therefore we applaud the Commission and the Cardinal. I am sure we will be visiting often.
Spike their stats folks. SPIKE ‘EM HIGH.
You will notice right away that they do NOT have a "Contact Us" form. They do NOT have an "Ask a Question" form.
And I don’t blame them.
However… I wonder if this can’t be seen as a prelude to the Commission actually using the site to divulge… gulp… new material. If you get my drift.
