SIGNIS Media 1/2016 : The art of Storytelling

“The fish, the loaves, the shepherd: in evoking the mystery,
they became almost imperceptibly the first traces of a new art.”
St John Paul II (Letter to Artists, 7)

With this issue of SIGNIS Media we are starting a reflection that will take us to our next World Congress, to be held in Québec City in June 2017. Its focus will be “Media for a Culture of Peace: Promoting Stories of Hope”. A theme in which, as in a mirror, we are able to see ourselves as communicators and storytellers of hope in today’s world.

The Pope, at the beginning of his letter to artists, reminds us of the symbols through
which the first Christians recognized and identified themselves and communicated
the mysteries of faith. In the following pages a number of communicators share their
experiences and what they have learned about the art of storytelling. I hope that, like
those early Christians, you too will find yourselves reflected in such stories.
