Description of Service
'The Church needs to be concerned for, and present in, the world of communication, in order to dialogue with people today and to help them encounter Christ. The revolution taking place in communications media and in information technologies represents a great and thrilling challenge; may we respond to that challenge with fresh energy and imagination as we seek to share with others the beauty of God.'
Message of Pope Francis for the 48th World Communications Day, January 24, 2014 (Feast Day, St. Francis de Sales, Patron Saintof Journalists).
