The Use of Social Communications MediaFrom the Catechism of the Catholic Church2493Within modern society the communications media play a major role in information, cultural promotion and formation. This role is increasing, as a result of technological progress, the extent and diversity of the news transmitted and the influence exercised on public opinion.2494The information provided by the media is at the service of the common good. Society has a right to the information based on truth, freedom, justice and solidarity:
“The proper exercise of this right demandsthat the content of the communication betrue and – within the limits set by justiceand charity – complete. Further, it shouldcommunicated honestly and properly. Thismeans that in the gathering and publicationof news, the moral law and the legitimaterights and dignity of man should beupheld”.
2496The means of social communication(especially mass media) can give rise to acertain passivity among users, makingthem less than vigilant consumers of whatis said or shown. Users should practicemoderation and discipline in theirapproach to the mass media. They willwant to form enlightened and correctconsciences the more easily to resistunwholesome influences.
2497 By the very nature of their profession,journalists have an obligation to serve thetruth and not offend against charity indisseminating information. They shouldstrive to respect, with equal care, the natureof the facts and the limits of criticaljudgement concerning individuals. Theyshould not stoop to defamation.

CHALLEMGE 1Message for the World Communication Day, 1986Theme: The Contribution of Communications to theChristian formation of public opinion.“In the world of today as it is, the instruments ofsocial communication in their many forms-press,cinema, radio, TV- are the principal makers of publicopinion. Great then, is the moral responsibility of allthose who have these instruments in their employ, orwho are the guiding force behind them. The media ofsocial communications ought to be put at the serviceof humanity and therefore, of truth and goodnesswhich constitutes humanity’s most important andnecessary value.”
STATUS“Those, therefore, who work professionally inthe field of social communication should feelthemselves under obligation to form and makewidespread a public opinion which conformswith truth and goodness.”
CHALLENGE 2Message for the World Communications Day, 1999Theme: Mass Media: A Friendly Companion for Those inSearch of the Father“The theme implies to two questions: How might theMedia work with God rather than against Him? and Howmight be the Media be a friendly companion to thosesearching for Gods loving presence in their lives. Italso implies a statement of fact and a reason forthanks: that the media though at times may make itpossible for those who are searching for God to read innew ways both the Book of Nature which is the realm ofreason, and the Book of Revelation, the Bible, which isthe realm of faith.”
STATUS“Finally, the theme implies the invitation anda hope: that those responsible for the worldof social communications will be ever morecommitted to the help rather than search formeaning which is at the very heart of thehuman life.”
CHALLENGE 3Message for the World Communications Day, 2004Theme: The Media and Family: A Risk and a Richness“The extraordinary growth of the communicationsmedia and their increased availability has broughtexceptional opportunities for enriching the lives notonly of individuals, but also of families. At the sametime, families today face new challenges arising fromthe varied and often contradictory messages by themass media. The theme invites sober reflection on theuse of each family makes of the media, and, in turn, onthe way that families and family concerns are treatedby the media. It is also a reminder to everyone, bothcommunicators and those of whom they addressedthat all communications has a moral dimension.”
