Pope Benedict XVI, in his message for the 45th World Day of Social Communication which falls on Sunday 5 June, has asked Catholics to make their presence felt in social networks. With the theme 'Truth, Proclamation and Authenticity of Life in the Digital Age', the message states that there is a "Christian style" of using the internet.

Reflecting on Benedict XVI's message for World Communications Day, which will be observed June 5, Lombardi said that relationships established online should never be purely superficial, and that they must not lose their quality.
