God's Rottweiler infallibly signals end of Internet as we know it

Pope Benedict XVI urged Catholic priests to "...proclaim the Gospel by employing the latest generation of audiovisual resources" in a message titled "The priest and pastoral ministry in a digital world: new media at the service of the Word", prepared for the World Day of Communications.

Monsignor Claudio Maria Celli (known online as CountClaudio1942*) head of the Vatican's social communication office, said that priests "who have a certain age will struggle a bit more", but young priests should have no trouble following the papal message.

This strikes me as one of those "Hell froze over" moments.

*that was a joke. I have no idea what Monsignor Celli's facebook handle is.
