Universal: Journalists

That journalists, in carrying out their work, may always be motivated by respect for truth and a strong sense of ethics.

Evangelization: World Mission Day

That World Mission Day may renew within all Christian communities the joy of the Gospel and the responsibility to announce it.

Prayer

God our Father,
You have given your children the intelligence to develop in the world
better living conditions.
One way to help this endeavor is through today’s media,
and the dissemination of news and life experiences.
Touch the hearts of journalists,
to convey the truth
without interference from narrow interests of bad politicians
and with a strong sense of ethics.
I also ask you that every Christian community feel increasingly the joy of the Gospel and the responsibility to announce it.

Our Father; Holy Mary; Glory Be…

Resolutions for this month:

  • I will critically read the news, researching their sources and realizing the interests that motivate them.
  • I will report journalistic practices that go against human dignity, against life and against the truth.
  • I will help my community to take without fear their mission to evangelize in their own context.
