(Zenit.org).- If the Church is going to fulfill its mission to proclaim the truth of Christ to all peoples, it must use its “creative intelligence” to overcome certain challenges of the digital age, says Benedict XVI in a talk on the “Culture of Communication and New Languages.”
“A profound cultural transformation is under way,” the Pontiff affirmed, “with new languages and new forms of communication” being developed.
The Church, Benedict XVI continued, tries to avail, “with renewed creative effort, but also with critical sense and attentive discernment — of the new languages and new modalities of communication.”
“The Christian tradition has always been closely linked to the liturgy and to the language of art,” the Pontiff said, “the beauty of which has its special communicative power.”
