.- Earlier today, Archbishop John P. Foley, president of the Pontifical Council for Social Communications opened his council’s plenary assembly, which is meeting at the Vatican to address the current state of Catholic media around the world.

Following with tradition, plenary session’s inauguration was preceded by a Mass, celebrated yesterday evening in the chapel of the Vatican's "Domus Sancta Marthae."

Some 60 members and consulters of the pontifical council, are gathered for the session, being held through the 18th, to discuss the reception and implementation of the late John Paul II's Apostolic Letter "The Rapid Development."

The letter was written namely to those responsible for social communications around the world and published in February of 2005.

The Vatican announced that during the course of the meetings, the Pontifical Council will receive reports from committees and departments of social communications from Italy, Europe and around the world, concerning the activities they have carried out over the last year.

From these, the Council said they hope to gain an overall vision of the situation of Catholic social communications throughout the modern world.
