(Newser) – What Would Jesus Do? Why, blog, of course. Pope Benedict today urged Catholic priests to take advantage of the "rich menu of options" offered by modern technology to reach young people. "Priests are thus challenged to proclaim the Gospel by employing the latest generation of audiovisual resources—images, videos, animated features, blogs, websites," he says.

But Benedict, known to be no great fan of the Interwebs himself, cautioned priests about getting too carried away, notes Reuters. "Priests present in the world of digital communications should be less notable for their media savvy than for their priestly heart." Now go friend him on his Facebook page.
