Digital Nativity Story

 |  NCR Today

This innovative version of the Nativity story is making the rounds on Facebook. It made me smile at first, then I thought, is it trivializing Christmas? No, I think it shows how Jesus is present in every new communication technology ... and we can celebrate his presence on and via the web together.

This digital re-relling of the Christmas story transcends every notion of mediated communication. The video also gives us an opportunity to make media the subject of catechesis while it is an instrument of catechesis at the same time.
