The Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn is trying to remind young adults who have strayed from the church or are seeking a place of worship that God is ever-present with a new advertising campaign portraying a woman taking a selfie with Jesus.
The daring ad shows a lone young woman taking a selfie. However in the snapped picture, she is not alone; an image of Jesus is just behind her. Emblazoned at the top of the ad are the words, "It's Never Just a Selfie"; at the bottom, the diocese bids viewers, "Join us for Christmas."
Monsignor Kieran Harrington, the vicar for Communications for the Diocese of Brooklyn, explained the ad stating, "New York is an exciting place to live. Yet for some it can also be lonely. We launched this campaign to remind our neighbors that they are not alone, that we are family." more >>
