The 16 Documents of Vatican II


Reflection 405  Based on the 1965 Vatican II document: 
Decree on The Media of Social Communications
- Article 8
(Comments welcome here)


An item of great importance is contained in this small article:

Since public opinion exercises the greatest power and authority today in every sphere of life, both private and public, every member of society must fulfill the demands of justice and charity in this area. As a result, all must strive, through these media as well, to form and spread sound public opinion.

If Christians sit back and don't get involved in the media,
we can't expect the media to give Christian values "a fair go"

Jesus, please help more Christians take an interest in the media,
e.g. in internet forums etc
