'Christians needed in mass media'

From a Rome Correspondent WORLD Communications Day—a day when Catholics concentrate especially on the problems and the challenges of the Mass Media— is being observed in England and Wales on Sunday. Pope Paul instituted the day three years ago. In a message this year on the subject "Social Communications and the Family," he speaks about the presence of Christians in journalism, broadcasting, theatre and films, "If there is a sector of present-day life where this presence is especially necessary and desirable, it is surely that of social communications," he says. "Families should not be deterred by any misgiving they might have when one of their members wishes to embark on such a career.

"SHINING EXAMPLES" "Evil that is much more publicised than good, is not bound up with one particular profession more than with another. Thank God, in the world of social communications, no less than in others, there arc shining examples of moral living, both in professional and in family life. There are those in the world of journalism, the theatre and the field of motion pictures who live out their faith in God in the calm and conscientious exercise of their profession." So young Christian people, inspired by genuine ideals, should be encouraged to work in the Mass Media, his message said.
