SAINT JOHN PAUL THE GREAT. “Saint Paul arrived in Athens, where he went to the Areopagus and proclaimed the Gospel in language appropriate to the understandable in those surroundings (cf. Acts 17:22-31) At the time the Areopagus represented the cultural center of the learned people of Athens, and today it can be taken as a symbol of the new sectors in which the Gospel must be proclaimed. The first Areopagus of the modern age is the world of communication, which is unifying humanity and turning it into what is known as a “global village”. The means of social communication have become so important as to be for many the chief means of information and education, of guidance and inspiration in their behavior as individual, families, and within society at large. In particular, the younger generation is growing up in a world conditioned by the mass media…….the very evangelization of the culture depends to a great extent on the influence of the media, it is not enough to use the media simply to spread the Christian message and the Church’s authentic teaching. It is also necessary to integrate that message into the “new culture” created by modern communications.
MISSION STATEMENT – Saint Paul Radio Inc., a non-profit corporation, is

THE POPE SPEAKS ABOUT CATHOLIC RADIO
“The words which you transmit, reach countless people, some of whom are alone and for whom your word comes as a consoling gift, some of whom are curious and are intrigued by what they hear, some of whom never attend church because they belong to different religions or to no religion at all, and others still who have never heard the name of Jesus Christ, yet through your [radio] service, first come to hear the words of salvation. This work of patient sowing, carried on day after day, hour after hour, is your way of cooperating in the apostolic mission.”
Radio due to its association with the Word, participates in the mission and visibility of the Church; this brings with it various ecclesiological and pastoral challenges. It is important to make the Word of God attractive, giving it consistency through your transmissions so as to touch the hearts of the men and women of our time, and to participate in transforming the lives of our contemporaries.”
