Pope blesses Catholic Media Convention via satellite

Catholic World News - June 03, 2010

At the conclusion of his June 2 general audience devoted to St. Thomas Aquinas, Pope Benedict blessed participants at the Catholic Media Convention in New Orleans via a satellite link.

The Pontiff said:

The theme of your meeting, “Spreading the Good News – Byte by Byte”, highlights the extraordinary potential of the new media to bring the message of Christ and the teaching of his Church to the attention of a wider public. If your mission is to be truly effective-- if the words you proclaim are to touch hearts, engage people’s freedom and change their lives-- you must draw them into an encounter with persons and communities who witness to the grace of Christ by their faith and their lives. In this sense, it is my hope that your days together will renew and refresh your shared enthusiasm for the Gospel. Notwithstanding the many challenges you face, never forget the promise of Christ, “I am with you always, to the close of the age” (Mt 28:20). Dear friends, with these few words of encouragement, to all of you gathered for the Convention I am pleased to impart my Apostolic Blessing.
