Strangers in the House: When Catholics in the Media Turned Against the Church - Mark Gauvreau Judge

It's a dispiriting sign of our times that the current mainstream liberal press would rather bungee jump off St. Peter's than allow a Christian into their pages.

The Church and the Internet - The Pontifical Council for Social Communications

Reflecting on the Internet, as upon all the other media of social communications, we recall that Christ is “the perfect communicator” — the norm and model of the Church's approach to communication, as well as the content that the Church is obliged to communicate.  Read more...
