BISHOP SEES SOME PRESS IMPROVEMENT

HALF TRUTHS are dangerous and damaging, is the message contained in the Pastoral Letter of Bishop Derek Worlock, of Portsmouth, to mark Press Sunday, October 4. Catholics should never be afraid of the truth, and should keep abreast of what is really happening and what is really tieing said.

Not long ago it was difficult to find space in a National newspaper for Catholic newstoday a great deal appears in print, but often leaves a number of questions unanswered. Moreover, the Bishop says, a correction of error is hard to achieve even when the true facts have been ascertained.

Establishment of the C'atholie Information Office had led to some improvement, its swift action to counter recent allegations about the young nuns from Kerala, for example, obtaining opportunity for the socalled "slaves" to speak for themselves. This is the kind of occasion when the ordinary parishioner must have the facts for his questioning neighbour.
