World Communication Day & Promote Catholicism Day

Via Sarah R. via Lisa Hendey via I’m not sure who, but I finally got the memo.  How to join in the annual Catholic new media blog-love-a-thon:

This year, in keeping with the theme of Pope Benedict XVI’s message for World Communications Day 2012 — Silence and Word: Path of Evangelization — we’re asking you to do something different.

On Wednesday, May 23, we’re asking you to take a one-day break from posting on blogs, Facebook, Twitter, Google +, Pinterest, etc… and use that day to reflect on the Pope’s words about the role of silence in communication and evangelization.

Then, on Thursday, May 24, please share the fruit of that day of prayer and silence with everyone, by posting your answer to the question: “What in Catholic Media has had an impact on me during the past year?” Share it on the New Evangelizers website at:

Because I totally needed an excuse to:

a) not post anything


b) write about the Catholic Media.

You too, huh?

    1. Amen. I removed my snarky warnings from the CWG writers guidelines, but my ban on fake St. Francis quotes remains. The whole notion that a God who calls himself the Word would have some kinda problem with people using words . . .? Oh my goodness you’ve started me on a rant. I’ll go be responsible now before I get in trouble.
