|St Francis de Sales|
As Rocco comments,"this year's B16-picked focus on the need for silence in effective communications work alongside that of words. In this relentless age of digital media, suffice it to say, making space for the former can often feel like the greatest challenge of all. While the pontiff's reflection on the topic rolled out this morning......this year's World Communications Day doesn't actually occur until May 20th: always the Sunday before Pentecost, now celebrated in most of the global church as the transferred solemnity of the Ascension."
From the Pontifical Council for Social Communication:
POPE BENEDICT XVI
FOR THE 46th WORLD COMMUNICATIONS DAY
