Media Prayers and Saints

The first discernible effect of electronics media telephone and telegraph, radio and television, radar and computer, photography and film and their derivatives has been to collectivize those who come under their influence. Words like "tribalization" and "mass participation" vaguely suggest something of what is happening. Simultaneously millions of people find themselves equally involved in seeing and hearing and feeling the influence of a single man or woman or a single event with whom (or which) they establish instant rapport. This is one side of the involvement. Instinctively they also sense that unseen multitudes of others are equally captivated by the same experience, which now takes on cosmic proportions.

Christianity and the Communications Revolution John A. Hardon, S.J.
