In an act of humility, Pope Francis spoke to over 5,000 members of the press on March 16th,”Be sure that the Church reserves a big attention to your precious work.” He clearly told the professionals that Jesus is the center of the Church and not himself. “Without Him, Peter and the Church would not exist nor would they have a reason for existing,” he said.
What a clear calling to all who write, journalists and others! Let all writers communicate as Pope Francis directed the press to, with “special attention to truth, goodness and beauty.” Identifying with the journalism community, he continued,“That is why we are so close because the Church exists to communicate precisely this.”
So, let us pray for how we can follow these wise words of our new Holy Father on earth, so we can all grow closer in communion with God, the Father, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit.
