The Evolving Face of Catholicism



The majority of religions have their roots based in ancient scripture and teachings, and as such are fairly inflexible in various aspects of their culture. However, as technology and accepted knowledge has advanced at an increasing pace, so too many religions have sought to adapt and reflect a more contemporary mindset. While this has been  generally considered as beneficial and a significant step in religions  maintaining their relevance, it has been questioned in some circles as distasteful and opposed to religious values.
Catholicism is an example of a religion that has long since been considered as  inflexible and archaic in its values, until recent times have seen it evolve to cater to a more contemporary view of existence. In addition to  modifying its views on abortion and marital union, it has also begun to communicate with followers through Facebook and other social media sites,  creating a modern version of the faith that is far removed from its previous incarnation.
Religion and Social Media

The link between Catholicism and social media began in earnest last September, as the Pope visited the UK and the church used the medium to publicize the trip and its details.  It has since retained this page and advanced the presence further, creating an additional layout to promote the  Pope’s impending beatification in May of this year.  This is one of the most significant instances of an established and major religion utilizing online media to reach out to their followers, and has prompted mixed emotions in response.
For some, religions using social media to communicate with their followers is a reflection of an independents faith willingness to change, and move in a positive direction with technological advancement. However, to more traditional religious subscribers it is an inappropriate act, as the platform of social media is an unsuitable conduit for religious values and principles. This may seem a little extreme, but it is a serious concern amongst long term followers of  a religious faith.
This is largely to do with the status of social media as a source of remote interaction and its links with online or casual romance., as well as its  role as a commercial and advertising interface. The concepts of casual romance and  commercialism  are strongly opposed to those which define religion and especially Catholicism, and it is this contrast of principles which creates the contention for those concerned with the direction and orientation of their faith.
An Evolution of Faith
This is merely a small indication of how the Catholic faith is continuing to
evolve, and perhaps more surprising are the modifications that have been made to  their attitudes and principles of faith. They have gradually changed their attitudes to serious issues like abortion and diversity, creating a faith which lends itself more readily to the demands and circumstances of contemporary life. This involves a more relaxed ethos in terms of its perception, and also a more welcoming approach to marriages between alternate faiths.
All together, we can see a religion that is now attempting to cultivate a balance, both in terms of its identity and the way in which it communicates with its followers.  This equilibrium is sought to sustain the faiths relevance amongst an increasingly knowledgeable and liberal  society,  in order to ensure that their message can still be heard and understood amidst a growing sense of scepticism. However, to many this attempt to  reach a wider audience  with a more contemporary message is misplaced,  and serves only to dilute the  core principles of the faith to a point where it becomes increasingly unrecognizable.
This issue also highlights the vast contradiction between contemporary values and the traditions of Catholicism, which continues to intensify with the vast past of technological and ideological advancement. Therefore, it becomes increasingly harder for the faith to adapt to appeal to a new generation of citizens, or at least to do without rendering its core principles irrelevant. As it attempts to do so however, it also serves to isolate may of its traditional followers and those who adhere to traditional Catholic principles.
A Necessary Evil?
For those who remain sceptical of the modern orientation of Catholicism and its outlets, there is a danger that they are missing the point of the faith and its message. For it or any religion to prosper, and to continue to remain relevant amongst ever evolving circumstances, they must themselves change to meet the ideals of a new generation. While this must be done without being at the expense of the faith’s significant values, it is also required to at least be flexible and modify its outlook as information and knowledge emerges. This may not sit well with purists or traditional Catholics, but it must be considered a necessary evil to ensure that the message of the faith can continue to be dispersed.

  1. I’m extremely impressed along with your writing skills and also with the layout in your weblog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Anyway keep up the excellent high quality writing, it’s rare to see a great weblog like this one these days..

  2. I think the point above by Adam about how the current system weights a win over the Lions as more valuable than a win over the Titans for an NFC team is very strong. I’d favor a simple SOV tiebreaker–just total number of wins by all your opponents.

  3. Excellent goods from you, man. I have understand your stuff previous to and you’re just extremely fantastic. I actually like what you’ve acquired here, certainly like what you’re saying and the way in which you say it. You make it entertaining and you still take care of to keep it sensible. I cant wait to read far more from you. This is actually a tremendous web site.

  4. Helpful information. Lucky me I found your website by chance, and I’m shocked why this accident didn’t happened earlier! I bookmarked it.

  5. Lewis should have been playing. Hes more likely to get better than get worse, and hes already the 2nd (or 3rd if you count Uribe) hitter on the team. Randy Winn has the 2nd most PAs on our team. Schierholtz has been just as bad as Winn, but based on his minor league numbers and the fact that while Winn is old and most likely to get worse while Schierholtz is young and most likely to get better, he is clearly the better option. The bottom line is Winn should not have started a game in the 2nd half this year, with Lewis at the top of the pecking order and Schierholtz as a better option, as well. I was unhappy Torres got PT, Im still not convinced hes any good, but it worked out so I wont get worked up over it. Hell, maybe he should have been playing instead of Rowand. OF should have been Lewis + Rowand/Torres + Schierholtz/Torres, and theres absolutely no excuse for the way Bochys played what he has. Im also not sold on Velez, though I guess he has been producing at an acceptable level since he came back up so you could give him some PT in there somewhere (but not for Lewis, who is simply better).

  6. Even the best BPs have stinkers now and then. It happens. As for Aceves, while he may be tired, there is also the likelihood the league is adjusting to him. Hell just have to do the same.

  7. I vote for The Changeling with George C. Scott. Another one: See No Evil with Mia Farrow really scared the heck out of me as a kid. I also like Ghost Story based on the Peter Straub book, but its more creepy than scary.

  8. Thanks for your concern not to mention work! This stuff within your blog might be wonderful. Furthermore I just considerably value a ideas. For me these are definitely very important things. Anyhow thanks. Great read.

  9. There is a Zen koan about the attitude of dealing with the heat and the cold: A monk asked Dongshan. So, how can one avoid the coming of the winter cold and summer heat? Shan said. Why not turn to the place without cold and heat? The monk said, So, what is the place without cold and heat? Shan said, In the cold time, the cold kills one; in the burning time, the burning kills one.

  10. I do agree with all the ideas youve offered for your post. They are very convincing and can definitely work. Nonetheless, the posts are too brief for novices. Could you please extend them a bit from subsequent time? Thanks for the post.

  11. Wonderful blog! I found it while browsing on Yahoo News. Do you have any suggestions on how to get listed in Yahoo News? Ive been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Cheers

  16. Hello folks. So its t-minus 28 days to the baby. I have picked up 2 more jobs and am thankful for the time away from my wife. The Indians have been a joke since May. The Browns have been a joke since 1999. But at least we have the Cavs. Go Lebrons.

  17. My point is When it comes to consumers that buy plane tickets or grocery shoppers The consumers approach buying plane tickets or buying groceries knowing that they are not going to get anything free, and they couldnt even if they wanted to They accept the fact that they are going to have to pay for the goods or service that they want. They look for good deals But dont expect to get it free

  18. I am curious to find out what blog system youre using? Im experiencing some minor security problems with my latest blog and I would like to find something more risk-free. Do you have any solutions?

  19. Tampa Rays and St. Pete Rays sounds dumb. Something about the mixture of mono and polysyllabic words that doesnt work.

  20. Sonic Unleashed is better designed than Sonic Adventure in so many ways. I thought the same as you did, really. But, its really the other way around. Unleashed is simply put, Sonic Adventure, Sonic Advance, Sonic Rush, Sonic Heroes, Sonic 06, and all the good things from 3D games put together into one game, which is Unleasheds Daytime levels.

  22. Eric Bischoff You wrote:Then they dropped the ball on Katrina, trampled our laws and civil rights, kidnapped, tortured, assassinated. Since you lump these in with dropping the ball on Katrina, I assume you mean these were done in the U.S. Please give documentation of kidnappings, torturings, and assassinations. Also, if you are using wikipedia as your source for information on ACORN, you are not very bright. Users can edit it and slant the information to their way of thinking. They can also remove information. That website has been proven to be in the tank for Obama.

  23. Considerably, the story is in reality the greatest on this noteworthy topic. I agree with your conclusions and will eagerly watch forward to your next updates. Saying cheers will not just be sufficient, for the wonderful clarity in your writing. I will immediately grab your rss feed to stay privy of any updates!

  24. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  25. My spouse and i were now joyous Jordan could complete his investigation from the precious recommendations he received when using the web pages. It’s not at all simplistic just to choose to be offering things that many men and women could have been trying to sell. We grasp we need the website owner to thank for this. These explanations you made, the simple website navigation, the friendships you will make it easier to engender – it’s got many overwhelming, and it’s assisting our son and our family reckon that the article is amusing, and that is particularly essential. Many thanks for all the pieces!

  27. Oh, I dont feel comfortable about my work place because I am suffering mass hysteria inflicted by the media and how someone was talking about guns. says the lady.Dont worry, miss. We, the government, will confront this situation so you dont have to actually talk to that person and ask why they would take interest in the Second Amendment. The Government says, while standing tall with their red, white, and blue underwear worn on the outside. [*PooF~!*] Your accusation are now a thing of the past, mam

  28. This is very interesting, You are a very skilled blogger. I’ve joined your feed and look forward to seeking more of your magnificent post. Also, I’ve shared your website in my social networks!

  29. Will print die completely? I dont think so. Its interesting that major papers now envisage the end of print for themselves, but remember these are papers in locations where the Internets disruptive power has been felt most. For those regions still without Internet access the majority of the population then print and other forms of distribution will remain vital.

  30. Hello There. I found your blog using msn. This is a very well written article. I’ll make sure to bookmark it and come back to read more of your useful info. Thanks for the post. I’ll definitely comeback.

  31. On a different note, it seems to me Ive heard that theres actually a debate about the serif=easy-to-read equation. Anyone have any insights on that?

  32. Im with you on how the Heat are playing. I especially love their superfast rotations on defense. Effing amazing. Id be rooting for them except one thing. Beating a team by deliberately taking out their best player is the dirtiest move you can make in sports, the most bush league you can get. The Heat deserve nothing, except a gigantic punch in the face from KARMA.

  33. Tim D., I follow you, but its not a false dichotomy. The world works this way. Its a self-evident principle of logic. Things are either A or non-A. So, a worldview, for example, is either Christian or it is not Christian. (You can substitute any worldview in for Christian.)
