Study: Priests are tech-savvy

A new study shows that priests should have no problem heeding Pope Benedict's suggestion that they use new media to reach their flocks. According to the study, worldwide, 94.7 percent of priests use the Internet daily. The Vatican-supported study, conducted by the New Media Education Lab at the Universita della Svizzera Italiana in Lugano, Switzerland, and the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross in Rome, asked 4,992 priests from 117 countries to respond to questions about how they use digital technology to do their job and about its effectiveness in spreading the Gospel.
