Service to the truth of God is mission of Catholic radio, says Archbishop Amato

.- The secretary for the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Archbishop Angelo Amato, said this week Catholic radio should present “programs that elevate souls” and should be at “the service of the truth of God, shedding light on the lives of our brothers and sisters in the faith.”

According to the Italian news agency SIR, the archbishop made his comments during a speech at the World Congress of Catholic Radio taking place in Rome.  “The microphone of a Catholic radio station could be seen as a modern-day pulpit,” he said, placed in the heart of the human community.  “While before the faithful would fix their gaze upon the traditional pulpit, today they fix their attention on this modern pulpit that is invisible but yet present and alive in reality, listening to the marvels that God has done and is doing in  the history of humanity,” the archbishop said.

He added that Catholic radio should also help listeners understand and accept the documents of the Magisterium, “especially the Pope’s encyclicals.” Such a task is essential in order foster the “double ecumenical dialogue of charity and the truth,” in order to “present the Catholic point of view in the inter-religious dialogue.”
