St. Clare of Assisi
Patron Saint of Television

Recognizing the importance of a free exchange of ideas and information, the Church supports freedom of speech and of the press (cf. Gaudium et Spes, 59). At the same time, she insists that "the rights of individuals, families and society itself to privacy, public decency and the protection of basic values" demand to be respected (Pontifical Council for Social Communications, Pornography and Violence in the Media: A Pastoral Response, No. 21). Public authorities are invited to set and enforce reasonable ethical standards for programming which will foster the human and religious values on which family life is built, and will discourage whatever is harmful. They should also encourage dialogue between the television industry and the public, providing structures and forums to make this possible.
