Canadian Bishops release a Pastoral Letter on the use of social media


The CCCB Episcopal Commission for Justice and Peace has released its Pastoral Letter on the use of social media titled: “Let Your Speech Always Be Gracious.”

The release was timed with the liturgical memorial of Saint Francis de Sales, who was known for his graciousness in speech and who is invoked as a patron saint of writers and publishers.


The document can be downloaded from the CCCB website:
