Pope to journalists: Your profession cannot become “a weapon of destruction”

2016-09-22

The pope asked journalists to prevent their work from becoming "a weapon of destruction of people and nations.”

In a meeting with Italian reporters, he said that their stories should not destroy people's lives and reputations. He asked them to promote reconciliation, instead of stirring up fear that may affect important issues, such as migration.

POPE FRANCIS
"The question here isn't to believe in God or not.  The question is to be or not to be honest with oneself and with others. This is the journalist's job -we might say his mission too-: to get as close as possible to the truth and never to say or write anything that one knows, in his conscience, to be false.”

Dario Viganò, the priest in charge of reforming communications in the Vatican, vouched for a more humane journalism.

Prefect, Secretariat for Communications
"How wonderful would it be if journalism knew how to show the world the lives of so many women and men that, day after day, with dignity and courage, face illness, unemployment, or the inability to build a future.”

ENZO IACOPINO
President, Italian Order of Journalists
"Thank you for this audience, which all of us were looking forward to, independently of our religion.”

As a token of this meeting, the Italian journalists have raised money to help the victims of the earthquake that hit Amatrice, in central Italy, last month.
