Living a Christian Life in an Age of Distraction
February 17, 2010
Presenter: Thomas Massaro, S.J., STM professor of moral theology
In the pages of America magazine (6/22/09), Fr. Massaro has wondered whether our corporate fascination with the latest handheld technological marvels may in fact be resulting moment by moment in "opportunities missed... for human connection and sheer joy." Do the tools of modern life make us more or less likely to be in touch with one another and in communion with our God? Is our faith strengthened or threatened in what he terms this “age of distraction"?
