Conquest of Paradise

Catholic missionaries have traveled to the ends of the earth to spread the Gospel. Now they're encouraged to enter the virtual world of Second Life and find the needy and the poor.

A Jesuit paper, La Civilta Cattolica in Rome, runs a story by Antonio Spadaro who challenges his colleagues not to fear Second Life, but instead enter it. According to Sparado is Second Life a fertile soil to find people about to change their lifes.


Just second after I published this post I Annie Ok, founder and director of the Second Life Art Center pointed me towards an article in the Financial Times, called Gospel 2.0: Jesuits move into Second Life.

This blog was based upon the short note in Metro, one of the Dutch free newspapers.
