Vatican City: The internet is a "gift from God" that facilitates communication, Pope Francis said on Thursday, but he warns that the obsessive desire to stay connected can actually isolate people from their friends and family.

Francis made the observations in a message about Catholic Church communications, meditating on the marvels and perils of the digital era and what that means for the faithful going out into the world and interacting with people of different faiths and backgrounds.

He suggested that in dialogue, Catholics should not be arrogant in insisting that they alone possess the truth.
