.- The president of the Pontifical Council for Social Communications recently reminded Catholic media professionals to communicate the love of Christ.
Archbishop Claudio Maria Celli, made his remarks during the closing Mass of the 2nd Congress on the Church and the Digital Culture in Chile on Oct. 19.
In his homily, Archbishop Celli noted that the task of Catholics is to communicate and “share the love we have for Jesus with somebody.”
The congress included a talk by Pauline Sister Joana Puntel of Brazil, who gave an address on strategies for communicating the faith in a digital society. The changes brought on by the new social media demand a new mentality in which users must be attentive to every message, she said.
The head of the Department of Communications at the Catholic University of Chile, Silva Pellegrini, spoke on the subject of ethics in the new media, which poses new problems in light of the multiple forms of expression in the digital world.
In his address, Christoph Dietz of the Catholic Media Council said in order for a project to be successful, its creators must focus on a specific audience and the means it prefers to use to communicate. He advised that financial risks be kept to a minimum and that improved financial management receive greater attention.
