«The mission for the outsiders». This is the motto of the website you are visiting. Born out of the experience of the editiorial staff of Mondo e Missione, PIME (Pontifical Institute for Foreign Missions) monthly magazine, MissiOnLine.org intends to represent much more than a mere web “shop window” for the magazine.
The new site is a tool aimed to emphasize internet peculiarities: timeliness, that is real-time participation in facts and problems; flexibility, that is lack of “material” borders and, finally, dynamism, that is the possibility to create “plural” reading paths, with manifold hints and cues, by exploiting different languages.
What this site is not.
MissiOnLine.org is not a digital transposition of the magazine, but an autonomous communication channel, complementary – in many respects – to its “papery sister”.
It isn’t any news agency, either (even if strictly connected to current events); it doesn’t intend to compete with other catholic or missionary websites; if anything, it wants to enhance them, by re-launching their news.
Finally, it hasn’t got any ambition to be encyclopedic, but its peculiarity consists in having a meticulous selection of topics and priorities, chosen by applying the missionary sensibility as a fundamental criterion and the social doctrine of the Church as a compass.
Why should you visit this site?
Which is the «value-added» that MissiOnLine.org offers to the internet users? In the first place the possibility to go beyond the news, by giving the coordinates of facts and problems.
In the second place, MissiOnLine.org aims to meet the users and to fulfill their needs, keeping its brand “visibility” in the background for the benefit of the message efficacy. By doing so, our site – which won’t fail to point out material from other headings, websites and editorial sources – aims to overcome the fragmentation that nowadays characterizes the missionary world by conveying its richness and plurality of contents.
