Video: Dutch Priest Says We Should Be “Tweeting” For God, But It Can’t Stop There

Zoe Romanowsky - published on 05/01/15

Fr. Michel Remery answers life's questions in "tweet-sized" answers

Dutch Catholic priest, Father Michel Remery, has put together a collection of tweet-sized questions and answers into a new book called Tweeting With God, now published in English by Ignatius Press. The project began in the parish with questions from young people. At the end, he would summarize the sessions and the young people asked for them to be made into a book. Later, they decided to expand the project to social media since many young people don't read books anymore. Father Michele says we need to reach people where they are and use every medium to communicate the faith. Here Father Michel speaks to Zoe Romanowsky about why social media is key to spreading the timeless truths of the Gospel.
