World Communications Sunday

WORLD COMMUNICATIONS SUNDAY Today, we are celebrating World Communications Day for the 55th time. Every year the Holy Father sends a message about it, the theme for the 2021 World Day of Social Communications, chosen by Pope Francis, echoes the words of the Apostle Philip, recognizing that authentic communication leads to “encountering people as and where they are”. Taken from the Bible, John 1: 46, the words “Come and see” are central to the Gospel. Before the Gospel is proclaimed, prior to words, there are “looks, testimonies, experiences, encounters and closeness. In a word – life.” Pope Francis provides the subtitle: “Communicating, encountering people as and where they are”. The full message can be found at
