CHURCH: World Communication Day

Pope Francis believes that memory–far from being a static, inflexible recollection of the past–has dynamic and transformative power that can influence and foster unity, a Vatican press release said when it announced the theme of World Communication Day 2020.

The Vatican and many dioceses mark World Communication Day on the Sunday before Pentecost, in 2020 that will be May 24. For this year’s message, the pope chose the theme, “So that you can tell your children and grandchildren. Life creates history.”

The Vatican said the message will call for ongoing dialogue with each other and with the past and will ask everyone to make communications be “an instrument to build bridges, to unite and to share the beauty of being brothers and sisters in a moment of history marked by discord and division.”
