CONFESSIONS
5:30p.m. ST. BENEDICT  

Today  we  can  communicate  with  people  around the world in
an  instant;  technology  has  made  it  so.    The  interesting  thing
about  the  global  community  is  that  we can communicate with
ease  throughout  the  world  and  even  across  languages  and
cultures,  but  what  does  this  mean  for  us  as  human beings?
Does our technology assist us in becoming better people?  
we allow technology to take us into the realms of the ideal or
into the depths of depravity?

The cure of all illness is found within the technology given by God found in grace and
practiced in faith.  The technology of the human person is within the electrical impulses
that  cause  the  human  heart  to  beat  and  in  the  synapses,
technology  of  the  human  person  cannot be replaced by man-made electronics, for the
