Through the spread and prevalence of technology in our contemporary world, especially digital media, we live in an environment where we are constantly presented with information. We are challenged, due to the volume and types of information, to discern what is important and helpful, and we are also challenged to be good stewards of our time while using technology in our daily lives. The focus of this issue of PRAXIS on the topic of digital media is important in our ministry as teachers and leaders in our parishes. To guide others in learning and applying our Faith, we must also be aware of the challenges above and help others understand the priority of our Faith and our relationship with God.
