English translation of the Italian: “Dear friends, I am pleased to get in touch with you through Twitter. Thank you for your generous response. I bless all of you from my heart.”
Is there a way to write a monumental first message without making it sound like one is being too "nice" (or craving attention)? Will he continue to use Twitter a year from now? (Or will he have someone else do it for him?)
Bishops, refocus on the personal and forget electronic gadgets. Be a good example to the laity of how one should cultivate friendships through real, personal interaction. While one cannot reduce grace to nature, one should note that many successful groups have used this strategy to convert and make new members, and continue to do so.
