On Films, Radio and Television AMILLION copies ot the Pope's
encyclical Miranda Prorsuson films, radio and television have been distributed in more than 20 languages in the 12 months since it was issued.
Writing in the Osserratore Romano Bishop O'Connor, Rector of the North American College in Rome. and president of the Pontifical Commission for Motion Pictures, Radio and Television, giving these figures says that in one year the encyclical has become the source of a new spirit of the apostolate and of many activities by Catholics.
He points out that "many Catholic universities and other educational institutions have begun special courses this year in motion picture, radio and television techniques."
He recalls that both the moral and artistic standards of film production and motion picture publicity have dropped and been deplored for the past several years, but finds ground for hope for a reversal of this tendency.
