SSCSNews no. 41 March 2013

My dear confreres and friends of SC,
The Lord has given us hopeful signs during Lent that lead us to Easter and we have been invited by Pope Frances, "with kindness and tenderness", as is now his trademark, to personal and pastoral conversion based on God's mercy and the centrality of Christ, as manifested in life as service and care of the poor and of creation. This is a program for the Church, but also for communication within the Congregation.

We are already close to the celebration and proclamation of Easter, the saving passage of the Lord Jesus, risen to give us life in abundance. The entire Department for Social Communication team joins the Church, the Congregation and you, in celebrating and proclaiming this central fact of our faith and hope which gives meaning to our lives. The Risen Christ is the centre of all Christian communication; we are to proclaim this with our lives and with all the media at our disposal. We can not keep quiet. Our world, the young and the poor are in need of this story: that Jesus died on the cross, has risen, and that we are witnesses.

Happy Easter!

Fr Filiberto González, Councillor for SC
