by

Following up on its website, the Vatican launches itself deeper into cyberspace with its own YouTube channel. It will broadcast short video news clips updated daily on the Pope’s activities and what’s happening at the Vatican, with audio and text in English, Spanish, German and Italian. Officials at the Vatican say it is aimed at everyone from devout Catholics to the casual web browser. The Vatican newspaper, L’Osservatore Romano, noted Pope Benedict had always been “fond of new technologies” and hoped to use them to reach out to “the digital generation.”
