World Communications Day 2019

16/05/2019 1:56 pm

Pope Francis filmed with young people

The Catholic Church celebrates World Communications Day on Sunday 2 June 2019 when we are asked to pray for those who work in the media.

It's a digital world and since the launch of the internet, the Church has always sought to promote its use in the service of the encounter between persons, and of solidarity among all.

While governments seek legal ways to regulate the digital world and to protect the original vision of a free, open and secure network, we all have the possibility and the responsibility to promote its positive use.

Statistics show that among young people one in four is involved in episodes of cyberbullying. To stem this phenomenon, an International Observatory for Cyberbullying Prevention will be established, with its headquarters in the Vatican.

Pope Francis invites us to reflect on our ‘being-in-relation’, and to rediscover, in the current communications context, the very human desire not to be left isolated or lonely.
