World Communications Day
Date: 24th May 2020
"That you may tell your children and grandchildren (Ex 10:2), Life becomes history".
Instituted by Pope (now Saint) Paul VI in 1967, this year is the 54th World Communications Day. Pope Francis takes storytelling as his theme for this year:
"In an age when falsification is increasingly sophisticated, reaching exponential levels (as in deepfake), we need wisdom to be able to welcome and create beautiful, true and good stories. We need courage to reject false and evil stories. We need patience and discernment to rediscover stories that help us not to lose the thread amid today's many troubles. We need stories that reveal who we truly are, also in the untold heroism of everyday life."
