Padua diocese preaches via Whatsapp

Distributes homilies and multimedia content ready for sharing

(ANSA) - Padua, February 15 - The Catholic diocese of Padua said on Monday that it is using applications such as Whatsapp to send shareable multimedia content to the faithful in a project that was announced personally by Pope Francis on the diocese's website Un Attimo di Pace (A Moment of Peace). "It's a new pastoral format, suitable for adults that have brief periods of free time at their disposal and are interested in use (of it) on the go," said the project's coordinator, Father Marco Sanavio.
    Padua Bishop Claudio Cipolla will deliver his homilies every Sunday through Easter to the project's Whatsapp users.
