Cardinal Sean O'Malley First Cardinal to Utilize Podcasts

Our Capuchin brother, Cardinal Sean O'Malley, continues to utilize the growing advances in communication. First it was the "blog," now Cardinal O' Malley is trying his hand at "podcasts."

O'Malley will become the first of the Catholic Church's 186 cardinals world-wide to launch a podcast and use the technology to reach followers, said Father Robert Reed, who runs a Web site that will distribute the podcasts, on Thursday. (Finkle, Jim. 21 Dec. 2006)
