Director's Message

"I do not ask on behalf of these alone, but for those also who believe in Me through their word; that they may all be one; even as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be in Us, so that the world may believe that You sent Me. "The glory which You have given Me I have given to them, that they may be one, just as We are one.”                                                                      - John 17:20-22

Dearest Friends of Radio Maria,


The technological advancements in communications has made easy the sending and receiving of messages that are very crucial in deepening knowledge of the self and others necessary for genuine and profound relationships. The instantaneity of modern communication means has benefited humanity a lot by creating the exchanges of information in real time despite the great geographical and physical distances. The richness of information through the vehicles of advance communication has bombarded persons with so much knowledge contributing to the widening of horizons. The spontaneity of social media has revealed the inner psyche of persons with the beautiful colors of one’s own culture, belief, values and other social bearings opening the unknown to the known.

There is so much revelation of the interior self to other people which when taken positively could bring greater understanding and deeper appreciation among persons. Unity is an effect of such a phenomenon. Communion is the best fruit. However, a danger looms because all these revelations may also cause divisions and create chasms among persons. The information may be taken out of context. Sensitive details of the revelations may be used against the person. Biases may be immediately formed. People may be easily misjudged. Boxes may be readily made. The positive effects may be antagonized with the shrinking of perspectives and narrowing of understanding.

This means that the technological achievements in the field of communication may bring out extreme effects, which every stakeholder must be very careful in discerning about. One has also the need of proper guidance in involving the self in the exchanges of information. Jumping into the bandwagon must be avoided for they lead to shallow and even adverse fruits. Rather, everyone involved in the various communication means must take the thrust of bringing a daily difference to the life of others and thus usher in a gradual transformative effort towards communion where there is a fruitful and “authentic encounter” of persons.

His Holiness Pope Francis has said in his message for the 48th World Communication Day last Ascension Sunday, which is at the same time a resounding challenge, that “media can help us feel closer to one another, creating a sense of unity of the human family which can in turn inspire solidarity and serious efforts to ensure a more dignified life for all.” And so, we at Radio Maria take on these words of the Pope as our direction for this month and the next months to come. So that as we endeavor to embark daily on a mission in radio broadcasting we may allow ourselves to be seeped in with the spirit of conversion that could create a real community of persons among our collaborators and that could make sure that we all have an equal opportunity to be heard as Radio Maria becomes a voice for everyone.

May Mary inspire us all to minister towards communion where our involvement in the media and the new media in social networking sites become a catalyst of deeper understanding, wider horizon, greater appreciation of others and the self.

            God bless us all!


Fr. Raymund S. Cruz

Thus says the LORD: I will prove the holiness of my great name, profaned among the nations, in whose midst you have profaned it. Thus the nations shall know that I am the LORD, says the Lord GOD, when in their sight I prove my holiness through you. For I will take you away from among the nations, gather you from all the foreign lands, and bring you back to your own land. I will sprinkle clean water upon you to cleanse you from all your impurities, and from all your idols I will cleanse you. I will give you a new heart and place a new spirit within you, taking from your bodies your stony hearts and giving you natural hearts. I will put my spirit within you and make you live by my statutes, careful to observe my decrees. You shall live in the land I gave your fathers; you shall be my people, and I will be your God.
