BOSTON — Cardinal Sean O’Malley, a Capuchin Franciscan friar, began podcasting to the masses with downloadable Christmas messages, according to a Dec. 22 Associated Press article.

The video messages – in English, Spanish and Portuguese – are part of a broad effort by the Boston Archdiocese to embrace technology as a way to spread the Church’s message.

Cardinal O’Malley, who operates his own blog, is emerging as an unlikely technology pioneer, according to the article.  His Web log is considered a hit by archdiocesan officials.
