The aim of the work is to look at the spiritual aspect of human life in the era of computerization of life, which is certainly one of the greatest achievements of human reason; which brings about a breakthrough in the lives of individuals and the entire human community. The fascination with the product is so great that it blurs the cold calculation of profits and costs and common sense action within the boundaries of safety, including the spiritual one. Curiosity stimulates fantasy, which raises questions and anxiety. The ubiquity and indispensability of IT amazes people. But what about the risk of complete "immersion" in technology and at the same time "detaching" ourselves from the essence - indeed spiritual, but real dimension - of humanity?

Material and methods:
The work uses materials published by domestic and foreign authors and Church documents.

Electronic media are therefore a new plane of human activity, also in the sphere of spiritual intimacy. Through easier access to sources, through the possibility of direct and personal contact, they allow you to search, receive and analyze a variety of content, but they cannot directly force you to learn it. This can be perceived as a threat to traditional forms of transmitting and teaching about values and religion. And that's probably true, but it also creates an opportunity to reach with this message where until recently it was quite impossible.

Electronic media are a plane of activity, also in the sphere of spiritual intimacy. They allow you to search, receive and analyze a variety of content, including religious ones. They may pose a specific threat to traditional forms of transmitting and teaching about values and religion or a platform for their transmission and propagation.
