Defending Truth and Tradition in the Roman Catholic Church

Apple – Fruit of Sin and Coolness

August 20th, 2010, Promulgated by Gen

I’ve had several people in the past week email me asking about what the Church says about iPads, touch-screens, powerpoint, and like things at Mass. Seeing as how all these things are relatively new, the Church doesn’t have a clear teaching, ltirugically, on their goodness or badness. Personally, I think there’s a place for technology – In moderation, of course. When it begins to conflict with the dignity of the Mass, that’s when I have a problem with it. I’ve heard stories about battlefield chaplains who use iPads instead of missals. Fine. I’ve heard stories about churches replacing altar cards with iPads. Not fine.

The definitive decision comes from St. Francis de Sales, pictured below.
