In honor of 43rd World  Communication Day, Pope Benedict XVI spoke on the positive impact of social media on today's youth. "The desire for connectedness and the instinct for communication that are so obvious in contemporary culture are best understood as modern manifestations of the basic and enduring propensity of humans to reach beyond themselves and to seek communion with others. In reality, when we open ourselves to others, we are fulfilling our deepest need and becoming more fully human. "

 

Travelujah is an excellent example of what the Pope feels is "the enormous capacity to "foster connectedness, communication and understanding between individuals and communities . . . as means of communicating with existing friends, of meeting new friends, of forming communities and networks, of seeking information and news, and of sharing their ideas and opinions."

 

Travelujah was founded on the same principle that the Pope shared so eloquently, "The desire for connectedness and the instinct for communication that are so obvious in contemporary culture are best understood as modern manifestations of the basic and enduring propensity of humans to reach beyond themselves and to seek communion with others. In reality, when we open ourselves to others, we are fulfilling our deepest need and becoming more fully human. "

 

Travelujah aims to allow pilgrims to share details of their journeys in the Holy Land so that others may have an opportunity to share their profound profound experiences. As the Pope said  "Life is not just a succession of events or experiences: it is a search for the true, the good and the beautiful. It is to this end that we make our choices; it is for this that we exercise our freedom; it is in this - in truth, in goodness, and in beauty - that we find happiness and joy."  

In honor of 43rd World Communication Cay , the Vatican announced the launch of www.pope2you.net; a new website that seeks to bring the gospel to the Internet. Pope2You is a new website for young people, created in the context of the 43rd World Day of Social Communications, the theme of which i"New Technologies, New Relationships: Promoting a culture of Respect, Dialogue and Friendship."
