Pope Gets into Texting (Yes, That's Right)

index_benxvi.jpg Not to be outdone by technology, Pope Benedict XVI (yes, that Pope) recently sent his first SMS to thousands of World Youth Day pilgrims who signed up to receive divine direction via technology.

And this text messaging will become a daily deed!

As part of the Catholic festival in Australia, Telstra erected eight temporary base stations to allow young pilgrims to send text messages to family and friends.

Four giant digital "prayer wall'' screens have also been erected at the Sydney Opera House, the Domain, Darling Harbour and Randwick Racecourse.

Pilgrims who sign up will also be able to send a message to the giant prayer walls.
