E-book: a powerful instrument for responding to the world?s needs

After the earthquake in Haiti, many people came to our book centers seeking something that would help them respond to this great tragedy.
Only a week after the earthquake, the sisters decided to prepare a free on-line booklet of prayers, entitled: ?The World on its Knees?.
The e-book, which is available on Pauline media and the associated sites, was published also on three different facebook pages of Daughters of St. Paul of the United States, and when we connected, 8000 persons immediately opened hits on the sites.
The week after saw the insertion of the on-line book on the Catholic sites like Zenit e CNR, in addition to many important USA blogs.
This made the publication of more than 8000 articles, 20,000 pages to read, and about 350 downloads of the book possible.
