The Internet, because of its ability to overcome distances and put people in contact with each other, presents great opportunities for the church and its mission, Pope Benedict XVI told the Congregation for Catholic Education.
Referring to a draft document on the Internet and seminary formation, the Pope told the Congregation that with "necessary discretion for its intelligent and prudent use," the Internet may be of help for both studies and pastoral work of future priests in the various fields within the church.
He stressed that it was important to have adequately trained persons to work in the Internet missionary sector.
