MANILA, Nov. 26, 2013—At a time when “selfie” has been considered the word of the year, Catholics are urged to refrain from joining the bandwagon and to create a new trend instead.
Fr. Stephen Cuyos has urged Catholics present on social media to post Godfies instead of selfies on their social media pages.
“Instead of selfies, why don’t we post Godfies or images that focus on God? Instead of proclaiming or glorifying yourself, proclaim and glorify God in your social media posts,” Cuyos told the participants of the Catholic Social Media Summit over the weekend.
A social media evangelization advocate, Cuyos said netizens should post more content that “lead people to God and to prayer.”
“Post things that lead us to prayer and to foster meaningful friendships and deepened relationships both online and offline,” he said.
The Catholic Social Media Summit gathered about 400 participants from different schools, seminarians, clergy, religious sisters and youth ministers at the Colegio de San Juan de Letran last Nov. 23 and 24. (YouthPinoy)
