WORLD COMMUNICATION DAY- MAY 29 Today Catholics are invited to reflect upon the media of social communication (films, radio, television, newspapers, audiovisuals) and how these influence our lives. The media can promote values that lead to a more fully human society. The Church’s ministry is twofold. The media can be used to help promote the Gospel. At the same time, as receivers of the materials presented by the media, the faithful have a duty to support and promote worthwhile presentations on media and reject those, which promote value contrary to spiritual growth
We are most grateful that the Holy Father has accepted the invitation from the Conference of Canadian Bishops (CCCB) to come to Canada so as to continue on the path of reconciliation and healing with Canadian Indigenous Peoples. His Holiness has announced that he will be in Canada from July 24th to July 29th, 2022. In view of Pope Francis’ age and health condition, he will be focusing his visit on three Canadian locations: Edmonton, Alberta, Iqualuit, Nunavut and Québec City, Québec. More information about the Walking Together towards Reconciliation and Healing visit can be found on the Papal Visit to Canada website (www.papalvisit.ca) and on the CCCB website at https://www.cccb.ca/media-release/catholic-bishops-welcome-announcement-of-dates-and-hub-citiesforpapal-visit-to-canada/. I invite you to keep the Holy Father in your prayers as well as to continue praying for reconciliation and healing in Canada.
