UCS(Rome)- Unconfirmed Sources report the Pope has released a point system to achieve salvation. The gamification system includes point values for good acts as well as deductions for sins.
The system called The Road to Glory is a detailed set of rules that outlines exactly how many points one needs to achieve salvation, as well as many holy waypoints along the journey.
“It’s fantastic,” says John McCork, a 24 year old layperson, “I finally can understand the true ramifications of my actions on my holy life. If I steal from work, minus 300 points. If I follow the pope on twitter, plus 20 points per week. This is exactly what I needed.”
Experts agree, the Catholic Church needs to reach out to younger people, and The Road to Glory promises to be just the thing. With a solid point system, leaderboards, IOS and Android apps, Road to Glory will appeal to a younger set of technologically minded youth, often considered unreachable by traditional religious practice.
