Overview

   “Dear friends, I am pleased to get in touch with you through Twitter. Thank you for your generous response. I bless all of you from my heart.”

Benedict XVI (@Pontifex)

In 2012, Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI surprised the world by joining Twitter. Behind the scenes, the Pontifical Council for Social Communications provided instrumental guidance for Church leadership in the use of new and popular mediums of communication, leading the Pope himself into this new and exciting platform for social communication.

The Pontifical Council for Social Communications is the Vatican’s department for handling social communications, from newspaper to radio and from television to internet. This collection provides the official writings of this dicastery, laying a groundwork for a Catholic understanding of social communication channels and guiding the decisions of the leadership of the Catholic Church in the use of new instruments of communication. Most importantly, the Pontifical Council for Social Communications explores new ways in which the gospel can be distributed through new and emerging social communication channels.

About the Pontifical Council for Social Communications

The Pontifical Council for Social Communications is a dicastery of the Roman Curia established by Pope Pius XII in 1948 to oversee the use of spreading the gospel through various forms of media. Originally created as a commission to evaluate the emerging medium of film in religious and moral context, the Pontifical Council for Social Communications now encourages and supports the actions of the Church in the realm of social communication, from newspapers to television broadcasts and from Pope Francis’ Tweets to the Vatican’s YouTube channel.
