L'Osservatore seminar points at media distortion of Church message

Catholic World News - November 10, 2011

At a seminar organized by L’Osservatore Romano to mark the newspaper’s 150th anniversary, experts were asked to discuss “incomprehension between the Catholic Church and the world’s media, investigating one of today’s thorniest issues.”

In its coverage of the event, the Vatican newspaper concentrated not on recent Vatican public-relations woes, but on an address by Lucetta Scaraffia, who examined the generally hostile media coverage that greeted the release of the encyclical Humanae Vitae in 1968.

    It would help if there were not so many mixed messages from Catholics themselves - especially from Catholic leadership. I consider the media hostile, but we certainly provide plenty of fuel for the fire.
