MESSAGE OF THE HOLY FATHER JOHN PAUL II
"The Communications Media: At the Service
[Sunday, 8 May 2005]
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
1. We read in the Letter of Saint James, "From the same mouth come blessing and cursing. My brothers and sisters, this ought not to be so" (James 3:10). The Sacred Scriptures remind us that words have an extraordinary power to bring people together or to divide them, to forge bonds of friendship or to provoke hostility.
