“Say What?” Monday Catechism Series #5 - Mass Media Zombies

A new series on this blog. Each Monday I’ll be posting a gem from our Catechism of the Catholic Church that is interesting or remarkable.

This week's interesting catechism deals with social communication and our responsibility as users and consumers of mass media to form our conscience so we can filter out unwholesome influences and not turn into mindless media zombies.

2496  The means of social communication (especially the mass media) can give rise to a certain passivity among users, making them less than vigilant consumers of what is said or shown. Users should practice moderation and discipline in their approach to the mass media. They will want to form enlightened and correct consciences the more easily to resist unwholesome influences.
