Media and the press plays a vital role in our society. Undoubtedly, it gives a voice to the voiceless and holds the responsibility of keeping everyone informed.
From national newspapers to local radio, blogs, or TV networks, all have a valuable role to play. A thriving global and national media matters to all of us. In these dark days of press freedom in the Philippines, we call for St. Francis de Sales, patron saint of writers and journalists, for justice and enlightenment.
A Prayer for writers and journalists
Ah, sweet Jesus, my Lord, my Savior, and my God, behold me here prostrate before your Majesty as I pledge and consecrate this writing to your glory. By your blessing give life to its words so that the souls for whom it has been written may receive from it the sacred inspirations I desire for them, in particular that of imploring your infinite mercy in my behalf to the end that while I point out to others the way of devotion in this world I myself may not be rejected and eternally condemned in the other, but that with them I may forever sing as a canticle of triumph words that with my whole heart I utter in witness of fidelity amid the hazards of this mortal life:
LIVE, JESUS! LIVE, JESUS!
Yes, Lord Jesus, live and reign in our hearts forever and ever. Amen.
