.- During a Mass celebrating the 89th anniversary of the Mexican daily El Universal, Auxiliary Bishop Marcelino Hernandez of Mexico City called on the media last week to have a greater commitment to the truth no matter what the cost.  “We want to distinguish ourselves by being respectful and courageous in always speaking the truth, although at times it may be difficult,” said Bishop Hernandez.  “Certainly this can happen, and thus the importance of entrusting our work to the Lord.”

The bishop also recalled that Pope Benedict XVI has said the media should be a bridge that unites people.  “A bridge that is always noble, strong, broad and secure and that favors coming together and helping one another,” the bishop underscored.

Bishop Hernandez also emphasized the importance of speaking the truth—a fundamental principle for Jesus, Mary of Guadalupe and St. Juan Diego, who are “excellent communicators who use this so that we can understand, assimilate and benefit from their messages.”

In this sense, he called on journalists of El Universal to promote a message of life and not one of death, and to give an example that in unity they can live their faith and at work and at home.  “Always speak the truth,” the bishop told them.
