It’s easy to criticize the problems with social media, as there is plenty to criticize. But there are also benefits to social media. Online platforms can be a powerful force for good, too.

Education, inspiration, and encouragement in your vocation are just a few of the good influences you can find online if you know where to look. The key is to be choosy about what accounts you follow. If you follow wholesome and uplifting accounts, you can have a very positive experience on social media.

If you’d like to add some spiritual inspiration to your day, check out these accounts of 5 Catholic priests who are active on Instagram. These men share spiritual insights and glimpses into their daily lives. Their witness as priests can inspire you in your own vocation, whatever it may be!
