Pope
Pope Benedict XVI and the Holy See have embraced the digital world this week. Traditionally the Catholic Church has been very hesitant to change the old ways, well all that has changed. Under Pope Benedicts instructions the church is reaching out to new audiences and the Vatican has opened up a YouTube channel.

Hear the words of Father Lombardi, he explains the reasons for the move, it's in Italian but I can only imagine that he says: "We have opened up a youtube channel that can be accessed in many languages "Canala e Vaticana so Youtube". Any Italians are welcome to transcribe in the comments…

This really is the digital era when one of the oldest stalwarts of modern civilisation has turned to the one of the youngest mediums for expanding teir communication channels.
