Dr. Robert Fastiggi breaks down apostolic exhortation in audio interview with Detroit Catholic

DETROIT — While digital communications and social media can be used as a tool of evangelization and a place of dialogue with others, they also can be lonely environments where young people fall prey to humanity's worst vices, Pope Francis wrote.

In his new apostolic exhortation to young people, "Christus Vivit" ("Christ Lives"), the pope warned that as the digital environment continues to become the norm, it has had a "profound impact" on young people's ability to communicate and develop relations with others.

To break down what “Christus Vivit” means for the Church's young people today, Dr. Robert Fastiggi, a husband, father and professor of systematic theology at Sacred Heart Major Seminary, sat down with Detroit Catholic to get to the heart of Pope Francis' message.
