Bishop encourages praying on Twitter

Not known for embracing new technology, the Catholic Primate of All Ireland and Bishop of Armagh has encouraged his flock to pray on Twitter: "Make someone the gift of a prayer through text, twitter or e-mail every day," Cardinal Brady is reported as saying.

The Cardinal continued: "Such a sea of prayer is sure to strengthen our sense of solidarity with one another and remind those who receive them that others really do care."

In more religious Tweeting, German Protestant bishops have decided to transcribe the entire text of the bible on the mini-blogging site. If they'd only just all endorse the use of prophylactics we'd all have something to Tweet about.
