The following is the Pope’s message for the 53rd World Day of Social Communications, which this year will be held in many countries on Sunday 2 June, Solemnity of the Ascension of the Lord:
Message of the Holy Father
«We are members one of another» (Eph 4:25).
From social network communities to the human community
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Ever since the internet first became available, the Church has always sought to promote its use in the service of the encounter between persons, and of solidarity among all. With this Message, I would like to invite you once again to reflect on the foundation and importance of our being-in-relation and to rediscover, in the vast array of challenges of the current communications context, the desire of the human person who does not want to be left isolated and alone.
