January 14, 2011

PHILIPPINES: Journalists have a duty to be instruments of truth and understanding, said Archbishop Jose Palma of the central Philippine archdiocese of Cebu.

"I believe that the media is a blessing. I believe that the mass media is a very important agent, a very important community of people who can be collaborators in the Church’s work of evangelization," he said.
