THE PONTIFICAL COUNCIL for Social Communications has today announced a list of 150 Catholic bloggers who are invited to go to Rome for a meeting on May 2nd. The list is here. Some of these folks had no idea that they would be invited, and are now scrambling to get a passport and raise funds for the trip. This meeting is not likely to involve beer drinking, but another blogger conference, to be held in Rome the next day, most certainly will.
I'm not sure the Vatican knows what it is getting into with this. There are some rowdy and fun-loving folks on that list.
