Rapid technological advancements have made media undeniably more powerful and pervasive. New forms of communications media, such as news and video-sharing websites, have emerged as a result of this technology.

Throughout history, the Catholic Church has recognized the influence that the media of social communications has on people’s lives. She is aware of media’s capacity to inform, to entertain, and to cultivate opinions & sound judgments. She also knows that media can and must be used to continue the Church’s mission to proclaim the Gospel until the end of time. (Pontifical Council for Social Communication, Ethics in the Media of Social Communication: A Matter of Choice, 3).

However, with the various resources on the internet available to man, literally at the swipe of a fingertip, the Church does not seem to stand a chance against “competition.” Aside from music, games, movies and social-networking sites, the Church is up against various “winds of doctrine” (cf Eph 4:14) and the “dictatorship of relativism” as Benedict XVI called it, that have so far penetrated cyberspace. In addition, the easy access to information, even those that are violent, corrupt, lewd, offensive or misleading, poses a difficult challenge to Guardians of the Faith.

At the 1st National Social Communications & Media Summit organized by the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines in Pasig in April 2013, speakers and participants alike agreed that there are no ethical standards governing the use of the internet, a technological mammoth that knows no limits or bounds.

By themselves, however, instruments of communication are neither good nor evil. The consequences that arise from their use are determined by how people choose to use them. (Pontifical Council for Social Communication, Ethics in the Media of Social Communication: A Matter of Choice, 4).

Recognizing the power and danger that “new media” possesses when misused, the Church once again takes upon itself the responsibility to ensure that communications tools are used to promote the faith and the dignity of man. She also exhorts those who have the ability and the means “to communicate Truth, Goodness and Beauty” to help the Church interpret and report ecclesial events that do not “readily correspond to ‘worldly’ categories which we are accustomed to use.” (Pope Francis, Address to Representatives of the Communications Media, 2013)

Ten years after its establishment, the Diocese of Cubao is committed to take up the Universal Church’s challenge to further propagate the faith and to defend the Gospel values through the proper use of communications, even in a realm as uncertain as the internet.

By re-launching its website during this Year of Faith, the Diocese hopes to strengthen its community in faith by updating its flock with news and information about the fruits of its labor thus far, and by informing its congregation about the work that still needs to be done to continue to build the local Church.

Furthermore, the Diocese, through its Media Office, hopes that this website may serve as a door, a door of faith that will open to and lead toward the “credible witness of people enlightened in mind and heart by the word of the Lord, and capable of opening the hearts and minds of many to the desire for God and for true life, life without end.” (Porta Fidei, 15). (Joey Villarama, Diocese of Cubao Media Office)
