Updated Aug. 27, 2018 10:52:29Many of us have grown up in a society where we are expected to be social, but in a post-Facebook world, we must remember that there are also times when the opposite is true.
In this case, there are times when a person’s Facebook profile or a page on a Catholic social network is being shared by a group of friends, which may have been a family member or friend, as well as their immediate family, who is in need of help.
Some of the reasons are because someone is in crisis and they are asking for help, and because the person is using a pseudonym or anonymity to protect their identity.
A great example is the death of Sister Nancy J. Hines in the U.S. last year.
Her death and the social media campaign around it have sparked a nationwide conversation about the need for more protection of the vulnerable.
In this case however, the priest who was accused of being behind the Facebook posts has been publicly named, so his name is being mentioned in the same breath as the church.
A number of Catholic bishops, including Pope Francis, have spoken about the importance of protecting the identities of people who have died and called for more openness about the way the church responds to such issues.
They have also called for better training of church workers on how to handle these cases.
But in this case the church is clearly failing to do its part.
The case of Sister Hines’ death has led to a lot of attention in the Catholic world, and a lot has been written about how the church needs to make better choices and more careful handling of such cases.
In the United States, we have seen some of the first steps in that direction, and now it is time for other Catholic countries to follow suit.
We want to hear from you.
