Mexican press office inaugurated for Pope's visit

.- The Archbishop of Leon, Mexico urged journalists to help Pope Benedict's voice resound worldwide as he inaugurated the country's international office press office in honor of the Pope's visit.

Archbishop Jose Guadalupe Martin Rabago told journalists during the March 23 blessing of the press office that every Christian is called “go out to the ends of the earth to preach the Word of God.”

“Today, you are present to make this call a reality.”

The archbishop then encouraged the men and women of the press to “faithfully complete their task as communicators, and to help them make the Pope’s voice resound.”

“May it resound with clarity; may it be heard; may it be understood and reach the hearts of the many who will hear this Gospel message,” he said.

Msgr. Carlos Aguiar Retes, president of the Mexican Catholic Episcopal Conference, spoke of the need for communicators to present the Pope's March 23-25 trip to the country to the “effect of those physically present at the event.”

“You are called to do this, hopefully in a very positive light” and with adequate interpretation, he emphasized.

The governor of Guanajuato, Juan Manuel Oliva, called the inauguration a “historic moment” and noted how over 1500 members of the press will be covering the papal trip.

The International Press Office in Mexico will provide live feed of the Pope’s activities. There will be 300 laptops computers and it will be open 24 hours a day. Fifteen translators will be on hand as well as bus service so that journalists can get to the numerous papal visit locations.
