The Twitter Cardinal


A hat tip to The Catholic Spirit via Twitter. The Times of London reports:

The leader of Ireland’s four million Roman Catholics has urged social-network users to start sending daily prayers by text, Twitter or e-mail.

“Make someone the gift of a prayer through text, twitter or e-mail every day,” Cardinal Sean Brady said. “Such a sea of prayer is sure to strengthen our sense of solidarity with one another and remind those who receive them that others really do care.”

Surprisingly, he then suggests shutting off computers and phones to pray more effectively. I guess he means that we should pray in silence and tweet the fruits of our prayer?

Sounds like the right avenue to me!
