Set of three talks on CD by Sr. Marysia Weber, R.S.M.
In this fascinating audio series, Sr. Marysia Weber, R.S.M., provides much food for thought regarding the positive and negative effects of the new media on the human person, and on priestly and religious vocations in particular. In these talks given at the 2011 IRL National Meeting, Sister Marysia takes note of the immense role that technology and the new media play in communication within the Church, especially in its work of catechesis and evangelization. However, she also examines the negative impact that such tools can have upon individuals and communities by the blurring of actual reality and virtual reality.
