Similar to the congratulations traditionally sent to parents after the birth of a child, the appearance of a new media is often greeted with congratulations. The event reinforces the right of citizens to "to freedom of opinion and expression"This is enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and in our Constitution.

The birth of this digital portal of religious and cultural information, Omnesand its printed version, is welcome news. As its director explained, It marks an exciting moment, the first step of a great project..., and at the same time it assumes the great trajectory of the magazine Palabra"."The printed version continues its numbering.

The world's media in recent years have been marked by the digital phenomenon. The historical newspapers are being reconverted, without abandoning the paper, to which so many of us are addicted. But the reality is that the network has practically become a great forum, with multiple platforms, in which each person is both sender and receiver of information, fake news included.

These days I have seen The Posta film in which New York Times y Washington Post fight for exclusivity and power struggles over a Pentagon report on the Vietnam War that, as is often the case, the powers that be wanted to hush up.

Some people ask: What are you going to do at Omnes? Journalism, then. With the best professional competence we can, as always. With news, with reasons and arguments, with hope, with dialogue. You will talk about the Pope... Of course. Religious information cannot be understood without the Vicar of Christ.

In this regard, I recall the Credoand its explanation in the Compendium from Catechism of the Catholic Church. Points 147 to 193, on the Catholic Church. Point 182 defines the Pope's mission. Then he refers to the bishops, the consecrated life, the laity... The Spirit blows where he wills... I promise to speak to you soon on influencers. We can all be in the exciting task of building the civilization of love.

A final pill, on power. On March 19, 2013, at the Mass at the beginning of his pontificate, Pope Francis said: "Let us never forget that true power is service, and that even the Pope, in order to exercise power, must enter more and more into that service which has its luminous culmination in the cross; he must set his eyes on the humble, concrete, faith-rich service of St. Joseph and, like him, open his arms to guard the whole People of God and welcome with affection and tenderness all of humanity, especially the poorest, the weakest, the least; that which Matthew describes in the final judgment on charity: To the hungry, the thirsty, the stranger, the naked, the sick, the imprisoned (cf. Mt 25:31-46). Only he who serves with love knows how to be a guardian".
