HOLY SEE: TOMORROW, THE POPE WILL “PUBLISH ON LINE” THE NEW NEWS.VA

13:24 – HOLY SEE: TOMORROW, THE POPE WILL “PUBLISH ON LINE” THE NEW NEWS.VA (2)

 

“At news.va – mgr. Celli explained –, one can find the main news printed or aired by the other Vatican media. It is a multimedia website that will provide visitors with instant access to the main news, both printed and broadcasted by the Vatican Radio station, or images from the films of the Vatican Television Centre”. At least for the first few months, the president of Pccs stated, “the website will be in two languages only: Italian and English. After summer, we will give the website a makeover and will open it in at least one more language, maybe Spanish. We will see, because we would like it to be online in French, Portuguese and German as well”. The website, the archbishop went on, “does not have a specific editorial approach: it will simply refer back to what the Vatican mass media write or say”, with the latter “retaining their own independence and identity”: they “will be made obvious by the presentation of the main news they post on the website”. All this applies “to the vatican.va website as well, which is not going to disappear but will retain, intact or actually enhanced, the mission it had been entrusted with, that of bringing the Holy Father’s Magisterium online – in its different forms”. Since the beginning, the archbishop concluded”, vatican.va “has been a documental website and it will stay that way; its work will be in keeping with the new website”.

 

13:23 – HOLY SEE: TOMORROW, THE POPE WILL “PUBLISH ON LINE” THE NEW NEWS.VA

 

It will be online on June 29th, the Day of Saints Peter and Paul: it is the new Vatican multimedia website www.news.va. “And it will be the Holy Father himself who will launch it online, probably through a tablet, in the First Vespers of the Day”. This was revealed today by mgr. Claudio Maria Celli, president of the Pontifical Council of Social Communication (Pccs), as he presented the new website to the press. “The website – mgr. Celli said – will not be published live, but we intend to publish the images of the Pope’s click as soon as we can”. With this online launch, the archbishop added, “the Pontifical Council accomplishes the task it had been commissioned with by the Secretariat of State”. This “important communication initiative – mgr. Celli pointed out – is a tribute and it is much more than that, it is the expression of our loyalty and devotion to the Pope, on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of his priestly ordination”. The president of Pccs went on to mention that “the presence of the Holy See in the area of communication has a considerable history of its own. Just think of the L’Osservatore Romano, which is celebrating its 150th anniversary, or the Vatican Radio, which ago commemorated its 80th anniversary just a few weeks. Then, more recently, the Vatican Information Service, the Agency Fides, the Vatican Newsroom and the Vatican Television Centre”. (continued)
