** Canticle of Praise for the Media in Today’s World **

May you be praised, Lord God, for the printed word, bread for our minds, light for our lives.

We give thanks for the talents and dedication of all who serve the truth in love and for all whose technical skills make possible the production of books, newspapers, magazines and reviews.

We celebrate, Lord, the modern marvel of television which brings into the heart of our homes the joys and the pain of all human living. Music, drama and laughter are shared in ways undreamed of in the past.

May you be praised, Lord God, for the radio which soars on the wings of the wind and provides for each nation an immediate channel for news, views and entertainment and a means of offering to the listening world its own distinctive voice.

We celebrate, Lord, the writers, artists, directors and all those whose gifts light up both theater and cinema and provide audiences with heightened awareness of their human condition.

We thank you, Lord God, for the unending Pentecost of your creative Holy Spirit which enables your sons and daughters to catch fire from your Truth, Beauty and Goodness.

We celebrate the wonder of digital communications manifesting a new iconography that can link people around the globe in solidarity of faith, hope and love.

May the blind see, the deaf hear, and the poor have the Good News proclaimed to them by all who rejoice in their God-given talents and their gift of creativity. Amen
