The Announcement of the New Pope 2005 & 2013
This past week many of us watched live via the News Channels or a streaming website the announcement of the new Pope. My hope is that Catholic Schools around the nation tuned in to watch.
The photo above was posted on Facebook with this caption:
Wow – Pictures ARE worth 1,000s of word … My how time & technology change things … (not always for the better)
This happened yesterday and seeing all of the phones (and ipad ;)) leads the question: Are we too often trying to capture the moment instead of living in the moment, or, can you do both? Tell us what you think… (photo via NBC news).
Are we too often trying to capture the moment instead of living in the moment, or, can you do both?
My response was that we were “Capturing the moment allows us to re”live” the moment again and again. I think it is great!”
What are your thoughts on this topic? Were all these devices inappropriate at this holy occasion? Are we missing some of life’s precious moments because we are distracted by our gadgets? You do not have to be Catholic to see this is an interesting debate.
Please post your thoughts here.
