    Great interview! I’ve been hoping for Bishops (and even the B16) would have scheduled live chats (ustream or youtube) where you could ask questions live.

    Great interview Brandon. I learned alot and continue to be inspired by your social media evangelistic endeavors. Keep it up brother!

  • Matthew

    One hesitation I have regarding a deep immersion in the social media world is that it would be a hindrance to prayer and recollection. All of the spiritual masters council against filling the mind with curiosities and distractions because they will agitate the mind. How would spending hours a day online be different? I would genuinely be interested if someone has a good answer to this concern.

      Good question, Matthew, and it’s an important concern. I actually address that exact issue in the Conclusion to my book, “The Church and New Media”:

    If only bishops knew just how little time it takes to make a few tweets. I think they should be given a demonstration at the next USCCB meeting …. By Cardinal Dolan!
