  • The vision of ‘comunio’
    “The media of social communications can contribute a great deal to human unity. So among the wonderful technical inventions which foster communication among human beings, Christians find means that have been decided under God’s providence for the encouragement of social relations … men are led to a mutual understanding and shared ambition, and this in turn includes them to justice and peace, to goodwill and active charity, to mutual help, to love, and in the end, to communion. The world of communications, then, provides some of the most effective means for the cultivation of that charity among men which is at one the cause and the expression of fellowship.”Communio et Progressio, nos. 250,253
  • 12. EvangeliiNuntiandi (1975)
    • “The use of the means of social communications presents a challenge: through them the evangelical message should reach vast numbers of people, but with the capacity of piercing the conscience of each individual, of implanting itself in his heart as though he were the only person being addressed, with all his most individual and personal qualities, and evoke an entirely personal adherence and commitment.” (no. 45)
  • Aetatis Novae (1992)
    The creation of a pastoral plan which contains the statement of vision based on extensive consultation; an inventory or assessment which describes the media environment in the territory under consideration, including audiences, public and commercial media producers and directors, financial and technical resources, delivery systems, ecumenical and educational resources, and Catholic media organizations and communications personnel, including those of religious communities; a proposed structure for church-related social communications in support of evangelization, catechesis and education, social service, and ecumenical cooperation, and including as far as possible, public relations, press, radio, television, cinema, cassettes, computer networks, facsimile services, and related forms of telecommunications; media education, with special emphasis on the relationship of media and values; pastoral outreach to, and dialogue with, media professionals, with particular attention to their faith development and spiritual growth; and means of obtaining and maintaining financial support adequate to the carrying out of the pastoral plan - Aetatis Novae, Feb. 1992, n. 452.
