NOTE FROM RECORDING SECRETARY:

In light of our interest in supporting local radio programming, I have attached to this report, two articles detailing the Holy Father’s support of Catholic radio.  The articles appear below.

Pontiff Says Radio Has Special Apostolic Mission

Encourages Transmission of Word That Brings Hope

VATICAN CITY, JUNE 20, 2008 (Zenit.org).- Benedict XVI says Catholic radio stations can play a part in spreading hope in the world, and they can do it by relaying the truth.

The Pope said this today when he received participants in a symposium titled "The Identity and Mission of Catholic Radio Today." The symposium was organized by the Pontifical Council for Social Communications and is under way through Saturday.

In his address, the Holy Father said, "The words that you broadcast each day are an echo of that eternal Word which became flesh. [...] The incarnation took place in a distant village, far away from the noisy imperial cities of antiquity. Today, even though you make use of modern communication technologies, the words you broadcast are also humble, and sometimes it may seem to you that they are completely lost amid the competition of other noisy and more powerful mass media.

"But do not be disheartened!" he added. "The words 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 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.

"If the many forms and types of communication may be seen as a gift from God to help individuals and all humankind to develop, then radio, through which you exercise your apostolate, brings words and music to people in order to inform and to entertain, to announce and to denounce, but always respecting the truth and with the clear aim of educating in truth and hope. Jesus Christ gives us the truth about man and the truth for man and, on the basis of that truth, a hope for the present and future of humanity in the world."

Exhilarating prospects

The Pontiff expressed the view that "radio, due to its association with the word, participates in the mission and visibility of the Church, but it also establishes a new way of living, of being and of making 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."

"What exhilarating prospects your commitment and your work open up," the Holy Father added. "Even now, your networks can be a small but real echo in the world of the network of friendship that the presence of the risen Christ, the God-with-us, inaugurated between heaven and earth and among mankind of all continents and epochs.

"In this way, your work will become a full part of the mission of the Church, which I invite you to love deeply. By helping the heart of each person to open to Christ, you will help the world to open to hope and to that civilization of truth and love that is the most eloquent result of his presence among us."

Evoking the Word

The congress has gathered representatives from 50 countries and some 63 Catholic radio stations at the Pontifical Urbanian University.

In his greeting to Benedict XVI, Archbishop Claudio Celli, president of the Pontifical Council for Social Communications, said that radio "is fully integrated, through its multiple network connections, among the new means of communication."

"However," he added, "it is undoubtedly a medium that is closer to and more familiar with words, that is, the first and most important form of communication between human beings. The word evokes the Word, the God made flesh that the Church has the mission to communicate to the world."

The archbishop affirmed, "We are aware of having to explore with ever increasing intensity all paths that lead to a communion worthy of man, as image and likeness of the Savior God."

Radio Called a Modern Pulpit

Conference Reflects on Medium's Identity, Challenges

By Claudia Soberon and Miriam Díez i Bosch

VATICAN CITY, JUNE 19, 2008 (Zenit.org).- What makes a radio station Catholic? And what can make Catholic radio more effective? These are some of the questions being reflected upon by a Vatican-sponsored conference under way in Rome.

The Pontifical Council for Social Communications opened today the first world congress of Catholic radio stations. The council's president, Archbishop Claudio Maria Celli, told ZENIT that the conference has brought together people from some 50 countries representing 63 stations to "talk together, reflect and understand what the identity and mission of a Catholic radio station is in today's world."

The congress runs through Saturday at the Pontifical Urbanian University.

"The guests will not just hear conferences but will have the opportunity to talk among themselves in virtue of what is suggested by some round-table discussions," Archbishop Celli explained. "It will be very important that all the participants, who come from different contexts, from Asia to Africa, from Latin America to Europe and Australia, meet to discuss and rediscover their identity and mission."

This event seeks to analyze the present with sights set on the future, the prelate said, so that initiatives arise "that little by little make the service of a Catholic radio station in the world more efficient."

Noting how the Internet has changed the world of media, Archbishop Celli said, "I believe we must discover what is in store for us."

Fascination

Archbishop Angelo Amato, secretary of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, gave the inaugural address today.

The prelate suggested that despite the widespread use of TV, "radio still has its strength and usefulness."

"Jesus arrived as a great master of communication of the word," Archbishop Amato said. "For him, three years were enough to educate his disciples, not only to listen to his word, but above all, to live with him and for him."

Radio, the Vatican official continued, is the "modern pulpit of the word of God." And the chance to receive the word of God on the radio is "a privileged way of communicating the Word."

"The benefit of radio comes from the freedom that it leaves to the listener, who is drawn in not so much from the obligation to hear, but from fascination with the word," the prelate noted. From here arises the need for communication to be "clear, professional and accompanied by the testimony of an existence coherent with the evangelical message."

Facing challenges

For Archbishop Amato, "the microphone of Catholic radio could be considered a modern version of the pulpit."

"It is about an authentic and personal spirituality of listening," he added, "[to which should correspond] a spirituality of communication."

After his address, the prelate clarified that "this service of the Word also implies building up the listeners with indications from the magisterium of the Church, above all, with the words of the Pope."

He highlighted the importance of a variety of programs, all in harmony with one another.

In this line, the archbishop said, this "Catholic pluralism" should continuously motivate the "personal experience of faith faced with the challenges of contemporary culture, [such as] the challenge of abortion, divorce, biotechnology, [and] biopolitics with government interventions that do not seem adequate regarding man and respect for humanity."

 

Catholic Radio "Is Not Propaganda"

Prelate Sums a First-of-Its-Kind Symposium

VATICAN CITY, JUNE 23, 2008 (
Zenit.org).- The chance to announce the word of God is a gift and a grace, said the president of the Vatican council dedicated to communications.

Archbishop Claudio Celli affirmed this when he closed the first world symposium of Catholic radio, focused on "The Identity and Mission of Catholic Radio Today." The symposium was organized by the Pontifical Council for Social Communications at the Pontifical Urbanian University and ended Saturday.


Archbishop Celli told Vatican Radio that an awareness of the role of radio in evangelization was one of the important conclusions from the symposium.


"One of the riches of this congress has been bringing us to rediscover that, beyond technology and professionalism, there exists a gift of God in announcing the Word; there is a grace of preaching," the prelate said. "It is God who intervenes in the heart of man to welcome the Word.


"This means that when one sets out to announce the Word through radio, he should have this awareness and this deep humility at knowing that he is the messenger of something bigger than himself."


Thus, the Vatican official affirmed, the work of Catholic radio "is not propaganda, but rather testimony and being aware that what is announced is the word of life, and this must be energetically emphasized."


Social progress


Archbishop Celli noted that another conclusion of the conference was the need to focus on the role that radio can have in the promotion of man.


From the symposium, he said, "the idea arose [...] that Catholic radio should be the voice of him who does not have a voice."


According to the prelate, this presupposes the capacity to react to "the problems and situations in which man is denied the possibility of being man, those in which the dignity of his humanity is not recognized."


Another proposal was offered by the theologian of the Pontifical Household when he addressed the congress.


Dominican Father Woyciech Giertych suggested that Catholic radio needs to be sustained by prayer.


"A good way of ensuring the spiritual fruitfulness of a radio that may be envisaged will be the tying of this mission with a monastic contemplative community that in a hidden way will carry spiritually the mission of the radio station," he suggested. "While the radio is offering its programs, the unseen religious community may support it with its ardent prayer."

    1. This needs to be mentioned to State Treasurer Dave Helmstetter.  Nominee will need to prepare a resume to be sent to Supreme.
  3. Chapter President Doug Sabo reported that a letter was received from a youth group (Generation of Chi Rhos) operating mainly from Emmanuel but draws kids from a variety of parishes.  They have an operating budget of $12,000.00 but have a deficit of $2600.00 currently and are asking for donation.  Dave Rickman made a motion to donate $100.00.  Motion was seconded.  No discussion.  Motion carried by unanimous voice vote.
    1. Note from Secretary – Chi Rho is a monogram and symbol for Christ, consisting of the superimposed Greek letters chi and rho often embroidered on altar cloths and clerical vestments. Also called Christogram.
  4. Ohio Radio
    1. Dave Rickman brought up that there is an open slot on the Catholic Radio station at 7 to 7:30 AM on Sundays.  Suggested we could do a Rosary or download one and sponsor it.
    2. Price is $30 per week.  Broadcast is on 101.5 FM – covers Tipp City, Vandalia, Huber Heights, Kettering, Fairborn.  Bill Wirtz pointed out that station also simulcasts on 97.7 – might cover southern communities such as Miamisburg.
    3. Jeff Weideman noted that getting the Chapter name out as a sponsor is good.
    4. A comprehensive and lengthy discussion ensued as to whether the Chapter should pay for the time or if individual member councils and assemblies should pay for the radio time on a per week basis. Discussion ended when Bill Wirtz expressed doubt that we could change the sponsorship on a weekly basis.
    5. Bill Wirtz will take lead and be contact for this effort after Dave Rickman departs from us.
    6. Motion made to set aside $390.00 for Bill Wirtz to cover the cost of 13 weeks of 30 minute shows, if Bill decides it is in the best interest of the Chapter.  Bill will report next month.
