The Synod so far: something missing….

As you know, the Synod of Bishops in meeting in Rome, again.  The theme this time: The New Evangelization for the Transmission of the Christian Faith

So far in the interventions (speeches) HERE I have not yet seen any mention of the internet.

“But Father! But Father!”, you might be tempted to interject, “The Synod is barely underway!”

I’m just sayin’.

Our time has been called “information age” by Bl. John Paul II and, according to Benedict XVI we live on a “digital continent”.

Also, are there good Twitter hashtags for news of the Synod?  #synod ? #bishops

UPDATE 10 October 1318 GMT

Archbishop Kurtz of Louisville, a participant in the Synod, is posting to a blog about his experience.  HERE.

    Fr Rosica is there. He is hopeful:

    No mention of the internet? But at the Vatican website they posted the Pope’s opening speech: what an electrifying summary! A ‘must read’ for everyone! Ooops! It was in Italian. Oh well! If you know Latin you will understand the Italian. Most of it. Hopefully.

    Considering this is the Vatican, I’m waiting for an intervention on the manifold uses of the telegraph for the New Evangelization. Morse Code, it’s not only useful for the latch on your cope!

  4. Ab. Joseph E. Kurtz is not only “with it”–the only U.S. bishop blogging the Synod–but as Bishop of Knoxville he was a very warm supporter of our TLM community. We’re still fortunate to have him as our provincial as Archbishop of Louisville, but before long he may well be “movin’ on up” from there also.
