Welcome to another podcast by La Civiltà Cattolica, English Edition.

We live in the Information Age, an age that is – more than ever – full of information. This is due in large part to the Internet and Social Media platforms that have changed the way people everywhere communicate news and information.

It allows anyone and everyone to become news makers if they wish.

La Civilta Cattolica

This is especially important to the Catholic Church because it is a conduit of information, which we believers hold to be eternally significant for our redemption.

That’s what Fr Michael Kelly, publisher of La Civiltà Cattolica, English edition, and Fr. Paul Soukup, professor at the Jesuits’ Santa Clara University in California USA, explore in this podcast.

Fr. Soukup has been observing and commenting on these changes to the media ecology: the technologies, the people in a historical context. Of special interest to him is the way these new media have altered the playing field for the Church and that, among other things, is what he focuses on in this interview.

Michael Kelly, SJ is the publisher of the English language edition of the 171-year-old Jesuit periodical La Civiltà Cattolica, published in English since 2017 and available in Italian, French, Russian, Spanish, Japanese, Korean and Chinese apart from English.
