Archbishop Foley's Address to Communicators. Refers to America Magazine
ORLANDO, Florida, MAY 25, 2005 (Zenit.org).- Here is the text of an address Archbishop John Foley, president of the Pontifical Council for Social Communications, prepared for a presentation today to a joint meeting of the Catholic Press Association and the Catholic Academy of Communications Arts Professionals.

* * *


My fellow Catholic communicators:

It is a pleasure to have been asked to speak with all of you attending the first joint meeting of the Catholic Press Association of the United States and Canada and the Catholic Academy of Communications Arts Professionals. Having cited the full titles of both organizations, I have by now used up all of my allotted time!

Since I was informed before the publication of certain recent news that one of the communicators to share the podium today is Father Thomas Reese, let me first say that I had absolutely nothing to do with the current situation, that I found out about it in the newspapers, that I appreciate receiving America magazine each week, and that Father Reese is a fine gentleman and a fine priest who did excellent work during the recent events in Rome -- where we occasionally encountered one another, but that I generally find myself in agreement with a recent editorial in Our Sunday Visitor and with Russell Shaw's op-ed piece in the Wall Street Journal that a priest-editor, who in some way is expected to represent the magisterium of the Church, cannot appear to give equal weight in a publication sponsored by a religious community to articles which present the teaching of the Church and articles which dissent from it.
