Technology can unite us or divide us. Technology at the service of Faith is a powerful tool to assist the Church in fulfilling her mission: To proclaim the Good News of Salvation in Christ to all the world and to shepherd God's people in the Way, the Truth and the Life of her Lord.
As your pastor I have often expressed my reservations about that most pervasive and intrusive form of technology, the cellphone. We are called by Christ to be active participants, players and producers of life; the cellphone is turning us into passive observers, spectators and consumers. It is a form of self-betrayal. Technology must never become a filter that separates us from and dulls down life, but be a magnifying glass to focus and intensify the abundant life Christ offers to those who will believe in Him and follow Him faithfully. Pope Saint John Paul II understood the power of technology to reach people far beyond the church:
Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven. (Matthew 18:19)
Technology permits a kind of intimacy in a church the size of St. Thomas More. When the personal connection is broken between pastor and parishioner, among parishioners and those beyond and outside of our parish, we sacrifice our unity and purpose. Technology prevents anonymity.
I commend to you the St. Thomas More Media & Technology Ministry as a way to serve Christ and Church with new skills and new means of bringing the promise of Christ alive here and in our community.
Rev. Julian P. Harris, Pastor
