Catholic Church Launches Facebook Page for Pope John Paul II

discussing pope john paul II's facebook page
On May 1st, the Vatican will beatify the late Pope John Paul II -- an event that Catholics will soon be able to follow on Facebook. This week, the church will launch a new page devoted exclusively to the beatification. "This is a beginning, in a simple way, of allowing the pope to interact with the questions of people and allowing people a direct form of access to the pope," Monsignor Paul Tighe told the AP. "With time we'll see how different initiatives can develop, but the commitment there is to interactivity, to engagement."
