World Mission magazine was awarded the Best-Family oriented magazine trophy at the Catholic Mass Media Awards (CMMA) on October 25, in Manila.
This is the fourth time World Mission, a publication of the Comboni Missionaries in the Philippines, won the trophy in this category.
The theme of this year’s CMMA was “Fear not, for I am with you (Isaiah 43:5): Communicating hope and trust in our time,” based on the Social Communication Day message of Pope Francis. In his special message, Manila Archbishop Luis Antonio G. Cardinal Tagle, CMMA honorary chairman, said communication “is an impulse of the human person; to be a person is to communicate.”
For communication of hope and trust to be meaningful, he explained, a communicator must have “a heart that knows how to hope, a heart that is trusting.” Without a “conversion of the heart, communication is reduced to techniques for manipulation,” he added.
The CMMA was established in 1978 by the late Manila Archbishop Jaime L. Cardinal Sin to pay tribute to “those who are serving God through the mass media.”
The Catholic Mass Media Awards is the most prestigious award-giving body in the Philippines, joined by personalities in the fields of television, radio, print media, music, cinema and the internet.
