In his message for the 52nd World Communications Days, Pope Francis challenged the faithful to take an active participation in the Church’s evangelization by proclaiming the Good News not only in words but also by witnessing in their life.

“The best antidotes to falsehoods are not strategies, but people who are not greedy but ready to listen, people who make the effort to engage in sincere dialogue so that truth can emerge; people who are attracted by goodness and take responsibility for how they use language.” 

World Communications Day is celebrated on the Sunday before Pentecost which in 2018 falls on May 13, the Solemnity of the Ascension of the Lord. (Jheng Manalang Prado/RCAM-AOC)
