Jesuit journal encouraging podcasting

La Civilta Cattolica has come out in favor of the use of podcasting as a tool of evangelization.

The church should not pass up the opportunity to make liturgies and prayers available via podcast, as well as downloadable sermons by "podpreachers," said the magazine, La Civilta Cattolica, in its Nov. 5 issue.

Here's hoping that the American church pays attention to this. Most of the Catholics currently using podcasting as an evangelical tool are members of the laity as are most of those blogging. Encourage the use of the new media and you encourage the vocation of the laity at the same time. But when was the last, or anytime, that one noticed a mention of a podcast or blog in a parish bulletin?
