Pope Francis – Evangelization – Media

BRAZIL-POPE-WYD-ARRIVAL

In my nearly 40 years as a journalist, this is the first time that I recall a pope offering a view on the media’s roles and responsibilities in the world. Think. Be silent. Be calm. Listen. This is papal instruction from which we can all benefit — those of us who write the words and stories, and those of us who read, view, and listen to them.

I may be a lapsed Catholic but it is heartening to hear a pope so in tune with the world and in sync with my own work and mission to inject civility into a world in sore need.
