Santa Cruz 14 July 2018 - Father General Arturo Sosa, in a meeting with social communicators and journalists of the Society of Jesus this Saturday asked them to “report with love” and to always highlight the positive news, which builds, supports and serves as an example.

Fr Sosa said that society is loaded with many tribulations and the media should seek to be a form of relief for it, because reporting the truth is a way of “loving and serving”.

The Jesuit said that communication with “truth and love” should be an example of communicators in general, but should be a daily practice for the media, journalists and communicators of the Society of Jesus.

For the religious, being an example at this time is very important, because in the absence of references one chooses visions that do not agree with the reality of a country or a place, that is why he asked to be ready to face the challenge of social networks, where a message of love and truth must be presented every moment.

According to Fr Sosa, social networking is a field for young people, so the Jesuit media must work hard to reach this audience. Journalists from the Fides Group, Aclo, Irfa, Fe y Alegría, Fides News Agency participated in this talk.

Father General arrived in Bolivia last Friday and will remain until July 19. During this time, apart from the city of Santa Cruz, he will also visit the Chiquitania and then move to the cities of Cochabamba and La Paz.
