However, in the ROC positively evaluate the idea of attracting youth to the Church and the fact that Catholics are encouraged to publicly declare his religion. “Unfortunately, the world of social networking very often considers religion as something outdated, unsuitable for the young man. And this, of course, not true. It is a challenge that needs to do something,” said Kipshidze.

It includes three sections: “Pray with the Pope”, which publishes the messages of the head of the Catholic Church, “Pray every day”, where you can read daily prayers and “Pray in the network”, where each user can publish their own prayer, and the rest are invited to click on it to Express a desire to pray together.
