WORLD COMMUNICATIONS DAY

 

YEARLY DOCUMENTS FROM THE HOLY FATHER

 

The Holy Father's message for World Communications Day is traditionally published in conjunction with the Memorial of St. Francis de Sales, patron of writers (January 24).

 

World Communications Day, the only worldwide celebration called for by the Second Vatican Council (INTER MIRIFICA, 1963), is celebrated in most countries on the Sunday before Pentecost.
