“Only trust can generate trust and make us grow in our common mission”| Dr. Nataša Govekar to SIGNIS delegates
Christ is Risen! Alleluia!
May God’s peace be with each of you, as we celebrate the greatest feast of our faith. In today’s Scriptures, we are reminded that we are commissioned, as the disciples were, “to preach to the people and testify.”
As Catholic communicators, we have a special role in this work of preaching and testifying. Media is a powerful tool, which must be used to build and strengthen the common good. Like St. Oscar Romero, we can amplify the voices of those who have been suppressed. “Peace is dynamism. Peace is generosity. It is a right and it is a duty,” St. Romero said. With our generosity, we can make peace a right and a duty for all.
On the feast of St. Oscar Romero, March 24, we launched the Media for Peace campaign. This new initiative is a means to express SIGNIS’ mission to build a culture of peace through the media and communications. The campaign aims to increase media literacy so individuals and organizations can harness the power of media to build peace.
You can find more information at www.mediaforpeace.org.
I pray you can join us in taking the Media for Peace pledge, even while you continue in your daily work to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ.
Alleluia! Christ is Risen, indeed!
