Pope: Internet Is a 'Gift from God' for Dialogue

Francis made the observations in a message about Catholic Church communications released Thursday, meditating on the marvels and perils of the digital era and what that means for the faithful going out into the world and interacting with people of different faiths and backgrounds.
