New Vatican News Portal

The key as symbol of St. PeterImage via WikipediaOn the heel of my previous post from James Martin asking  how well is the church using social media this post links to the newly launched and technically impressive state of the art Vatican News Portal  

which also coincides with the feast of St Peter and St Paul and the Pope's 60th anniversary of ordination as a priest.

The portal, to be found here at includes the best of the Vatican Radio site,  the latest news from the newspaper, l’Osservatore Romano, from the Pontifical Council for Social Communications, from VIS, the Vatican’s Information Service and from the Misna missionary news agency.

Available initially in English and Italian, the new site uses some of the latest digital technology to offer audio and video streaming, plus high quality images and a twitter feed providing instant news headlines to smart phones and other mobile devices.

The Pope made his first Twitter comment today. 

I am salivating over that i-Pad he is using.
