Field Hospital Workers Needed:
How to Foster Dialogue in Catholic Communications Today


This session provides clarity on using blogs, websites and programming to transmit the Good News of the Lord and to foster authentic dialogue.

One of Pope Francis’ favorite images which has certainly been seized by the media is the “field hospital.” When Francis speaks of the church as a “field hospital after a battle” he appeals to Ignatius of Loyola’s understanding of the role of the church in light of God’s gaze upon the world. Field hospitals by their very nature indicate a battleground, a struggle, suffering, confusion, emergency and they foster dialogue and encounter, conversation and meeting, consolation, compassion and the binding of wounds.

But the big battlefield before humanity is also the digital world: one that requires no passport and travel ticket to enter. We have all recognized the seriousness of the spread of hate speech on the internet and how it can be used as a way to catalyze and channel hatred towards ever-changing new, harmful targets against peace in society, the world and the Church. In this aggressive environment, we must find ways to foster listening and benevolence in interpreting what others have to say.
