“I would like, then, to invite everyone to promote a journalism of peace. By that, I do not mean the saccharine kind of journalism that refuses to acknowledge the existence of serious problems or smacks of sentimentalism. On the contrary, I mean a journalism that is truthful and opposed to falsehoods, rhetorical slogans, and sensational headlines. A journalism created by people for people, one that is at the service of all, especially those — and they are the majority in our world — who have no voice. A journalism less concentrated on breaking news than on exploring the underlying causes of conflicts, in order to promote deeper understanding and contribute to their resolution by setting in place virtuous processes. A journalism committed to pointing out alternatives to the escalation of shouting matches and verbal violence.”
 — Message of Pope Francis for The 52nd World Communications Day: “The truth will set you free” (Jn 8:32). Fake news and journalism for peace” - May 13, 2018.


It is estimated that one-third of the roughly 26,000 Catholic households registered in South Georgia regularly attend Sunday Mass.
