Papal encouragement for radio broadcasters

Catholic World News - May 02, 2011

On April 30, Pope Benedict XVI met with European radio broadcasters who were joining in the 80th-anniversary celebrations of Vatican Radio.

In his remarks to the group, the Holy Father said that the teachings of the Church on the use of radio and other modern media, since the time of Pope Pius XII, have been “marked by a current of optimism.” He emphasized the importance of providing accurate coverage of current events, saying: “It is a task that requires great professional honor, correction and respect, an openness to different perspectives, clarity in treating problems, freedom from ideological barriers, and an awareness of the complexity of problems.”
