This morning, January 23, 2014, the Most Reverend Claudio Maria Celli, President of the Pontifical Council for Social Communications, released the Holy Father's Message for the 48th World Communications Day (WCD). The Message of Pope Francis is entitled "Communication at the Service of an Authentic Culture of Encounter ". In 2014, the WCD will be celebrated on June 1, which in Canada is the Solemnity of the Ascension of the Lord. In his Message, the Pope states: "A culture of encounter demands that we be ready not only to give, but also to receive. Media can help us greatly in this, especially nowadays, when the networks of human communication have made unprecedented advances."
