|Pope John Paul II|
As I skimmed over and read through some of the messages written by Popes Paul VI, John Paul II, and Benedict XVI, I couldn't help but connect what they said to what I am doing in my role as a Catholic teacher. Our current Pope's most recent messages have focused on communication, life in the digital age, new media, and new technology - all within the scope of respect, friendship, dialogue, and positive & authentic growth as human beings formed in God's image. Based on much of what I have read from the World Communications Day messages, I can't help but feel a sense of relief and justification around the work we are doing with our students to prepare them to be dynamic thinkers rooted in the Gospel values.
