Vatican to Live-Stream Beatification

VATICAN CITY, APRIL 21, 2011 (Zenit.org).- The Vatican will work through its official Twitter and Facebook pages to live-stream the vigil and beatification of John Paul II.

The Pontifical Council for Social Communications, in collaboration with the Vicariate of Rome and Vatican Radio, is promoting the beatification as an occasion to form an online community called “Digital Sentinels.”

The group will “bring the figure and words of the new Blessed to the digital world,” a statement explained.

“This is another great step for the Church in the digital world, an event of prayer and evangelization that cannot be missed by Catholics around the globe,” the note added.
