Bishop Salvadore Lobo
India: 
The Indian Church seeks to proclaim the gospel with the media which are today a powerful means of evangelization in Indian society: said Bishop Salvadore Lobo of Baruipur.

Bishop Lobo is about to begin his service as President of the Commission for Social Communications in the Indian Bishops' Conference.

Faith and the Christian message are appreciated in India, "although there is sporadic violence against the faithful by extremist groups," he said. "To carry out a good service, in such cases, is to tell the truth without exaggerating with episodes of violence," he explained.

"We live in a world that has dramatically increased the speed of communication. The Church can be present in the agora of the media in order to make Christ known, who is the Way, the Truth and Life", says the Bishop explaining the guidelines of his new service.

The Church is present in India "with enormous efforts regarding social services to people of all religions", says the Bishop, announcing his commitment to improve communication in the media, Catholics and non-Catholics, in all the dioceses of the vast nation.
