World Communications Day 2016
World Communications Day takes place this year on Sunday 8 May - The Feast of the Ascension of our Lord. On this feast of the Ascension of Our Lord we reflect on the mandate that we should “Go out to the whole world and proclaim the Good news”. On this day, Catholics are encouraged to pray for all those professionals who work in the field of communications. A particular prayer intention is for those who communicate on behalf of the Catholic Church in this country through the Catholic Communications Network.
Pope Francis ' Message for the
50th World Communications Day
World Communications Day Prayer
O God, whose word is truth
and in whose light we see light,
guide those who tell the story of
our times through word and image.
Make them seekers after truth and
advocates of human dignity.
Grant discernment to all who rely on
their labours, and, as we confront the pain
and promise of this world,
awaken in us a sense of wonder at
your presence and of longing for your peace,
Through Christ Our Lord, Amen
