Pinoy Bishops are Blogging!

From Sun.Star Manila: The Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) has officially sanctioned blogging by its Bishops.

Mark Inigo Tallara, information officer and media relation assistant of the CBCP, said “our aim is to make every bishop accessible to the faithful, particularly to the youth that’s why we want each of them to have their own blog.”

The CBCP website features several Bishops who are already blogging,

Fr. Stephen Cuyos, priest, blogger and podcaster presently based in Rome, Italy, wrote on Sun.Star Blog Chronicles “Why Church Leaders Should Blog,” and cited three reasons for church leaders to evangelize online: to reach and enrich, to proclaim and explain, and to accompany and guide.

It’s good that the Church is using technology to its advantage. Blogs do have great potential in helping spread the word of God. The faithful also have a means to talk back–blogs are very interactive in nature.

  • I hope it doesn’t become a fiasco like CBCPNet.

  • what i noticed one of thier blog dont allow for comment, i seems they dont allow any reactions on their blog, so how they will interact to their readers anyway?

    just curious…

  • Now that ain’t good. Great observation. Thanks for pointing tihs out.

  • Probably, the bishops didn’t want spams or nasty comments. For correspondence, they might be reachable through their email add instead.
