The Pope Video - October

Wednesday 5 October 2016, by SIGNIS

Rome, October, 5th, 2016 (The Pope Video). Like every first Wednesday of the month since January, The Pope Video has been released. Every mobth, this video broadcasts and engages with the intentions of Pope Francis for the challenges of humanity. This month, journalists are the protagonists of the video in which the Pope calls them to be motivated by the respect for the truth and a strong ethical sense.

In the Press Release sent to journalists, we can read that, for the October video, “Pope Francis is deeply concerned with a cause that is always relevant: the exercise of the journalistic profession. And for that, journalists have joined the Pope to support his monthly intention, which seeks to position the media at the service of a culture of encounter.”

Since the beginning of his pontificate the Pope has had a smooth and strong relationship with journalists. It has been expressed many times to them and has already become a common practice in interactions to see opportunities for the exchange of opinions. "We need information leading to compromise for the good of humanity and the planet. Join me in this prayer request” says Francis in The Pope Video.

Below, find the complete script of the video

I often wonder: How can media be put to the service of a culture of encounter?

We need information leading to compromise for the good of humanity and the planet.

Join me in this prayer request.

That journalists, in carrying out their work, may always be motivated by respect for truth and a strong sense of ethics.

Can you help me spread this prayer request?

Yes.
