CyberFAIL: Vatican’s new office for internet evangelization … is without a computer

Yikes! Someone send Abp. Fisichella a gift certificate!

The head of the new pontifical council charged with evangelising cyberspace has said that his new office does not have an internet connection.
Archbishop Rino Fisichella, president of the Pontifical Council for Promotion of the New Evangelisation, made the startling admission at a press conference unveiling the new council.
A Motu Proprio issued on Tuesday established the responsibilities of the council, which include “studying modern means of communications”.
But Archbishop Fisichella said: “Right now, I’m just hoping to get a computer in my office so I can get on the internet myself.” [UK Catholic Herald]

    Well, since he was ok on abortion in cases of rape and incest while running the pro-life office, New Evangelization Office without access to the new media, not so much of a stretch?

    Oh, they’re just starting out. Be thankful that they have an office and furniture at this point.

    I think they need a little help from Thom Peters and Josh Mercer!!
