Facebook, My Space etc. have some new competition.
This week the Archbishop of Sydney launched the first-ever online social networking site developed especially for World Youth Day.
Based on other popular social networking sites such as Facebook and MySpace, the Sydney World Youth Day organizers developed Xt3.com, which stands for Christ in the Third Millennium. Be sure to visit and think of joining. It is a wonderful way to communicate and share the faith. http://www.xt3.com/
I joined this morning, and two of the organizers (Ruth & Martin) invited me to share with them. Even though I can’t get to Australia for the event, I feel more involved, and have a real feeling of participation. It will be a great site to help participants keep in touch before,during, and especially, after the event. I hope it is a real success. Say a prayer. We really need something like this for Catholics. You really don’t need to be a youth to share the faith and one’s life, but it should really be appreciated by the youth who attend, and their family & friends who have to stay at home and watch it on TV.
