Ahead of Saint Francis de Sales, a special program on Catholic media — KTOTV
How is the Catholic press doing in France? What is its contribution to current cultural transformations? How can we make the witness given by Christians audible?
In his apostolic letter It’s about lovePope Francis wondered about the legacy left by Saint Francis de Salesfour centuries after his death: “I found his flexibility and his capacity for vision illuminating”, he wrote, because he was able to perceive how the Word of God opened up “new and unpredictable horizons in a world in rapid transition”. In this changing era that we are experiencing, “it invites us to come out of an excessive concern for ourselves, for the structures, for the image that we give in society, and to ask ourselves instead what the concrete needs are. and the spiritual expectations of our people”.
This program, presented by Etienne Loraillère, will have as guests:
- Jérôme Chapuis – Editorial Director of La Croix
- Antoine-Marie Izoard – Editorial Director of Famille Chrétienne
- Aymeric Christensen – Editorial Director of La Vie
These three media are members of the Catholic Media Federation.
