Central American bishops create radio network

Catholic World News - November 30, 2010

The bishops of Central America decided at a recent meeting in Costa Rica to unite the 60 Catholic radio stations in the region into a network.

“There are 60 radio stations broadcasting in Central America, and they fulfill a key role in the public relations of the life of the Church,” said Bishop Alvaro Ramazzini of San Marcos (Guatemala). “These broadcasts will help in the fight against crime and corruption and are invaluable when it comes to humanitarian aid and human development.”

    Fighting crime and corruption is well and good, but what about the salvation of souls? Maybe the quote is mistranslated or taken out of context, but it makes me nervous when second things come first.
