Catholic Materials to Promote the
World Communications Day Theme

It must be said that the Holy Spirit is the principal agent of evangelization: it is He who impels each individual to proclaim the Gospel, and it is He who in the depths of consciences causes the word of salvation to be accepted and understood. But it can equally be said that He is the goal of evangelization: He alone stirs up the new creation, the new humanity of which evangelization is to be the result, with that unity in variety which evangelization wishes to achieve within the Christian community. Through the Holy Spirit the Gospel penetrates to the heart of the world, for it is He who causes people to discern the signs of the times – signs willed by God – which evangelization reveals and puts to use within history.

Evangelii Nuntiandi, Pope Paul VI

The Communications Media:

- Should make the Truth (Christ) known.

- Globalization of the media as an instrument of hope.

- Should defend the person and fully respect human dignity.

- Everything that states it is "Catholic" must conform to the Catechism of the Catholic Church.

- Parents are encouraged to take the Marian Catechist course.

- "Parents, as their children's catechists, live what you teach and be what you say. If you do that and love what you are teaching, you can leave the rest up to God."  Fr. John A. Hardon, S.J.
