World Communications Day: The power of social networks and their role in Evangelization

The Church recognizes that the world of digital communication is a major tool for evangelization, especially since it can lead people to God. The ability to promote that dialogue will be discussed on May 12th, 2013, during World Communications Day.

This annual tradition was established by the Second Vatican Council and is celebrated on the Sunday before Pentecost. Traditionally, the Pope publishes a special message every year on January 24th, which marks the feast of St. Francis de Sales, patron saint of writers.
