We are living in an exciting era in history with the proliferation of  amazing technological advances in communications. What was unheard of  even as recent as five years agois now possible.  With the creation of hand held computers, PDA's  iPods and iPhones, and MP3 Players, to name a few, people are communicating in a new and instanteous manner.  While it may be argued that this technology is impersonal, none-the-less, it offers the Church a tremendous opportunity to inform and inspire.
