The 16 Documents of Vatican II


Reflection 398 Based on the 1965 Vatican II document: 
Decree on The Media of Social Communications
- Article 1
(Comments welcome here)



Article one marvels at the modern means of communication which can reach "so many people"

Since 1963 when this decree was written, the internet has come into being ... and "so many people" now means tens, if not hundreds, of millions of people at the same time

We can ask: have the internet/radio/TV/cinema etc been a help to evangelization?  Can they be a bigger help?

Jesus, please help Christians more effectively use modern means of communication to spread your Good News
