Publisher: communicates with creativity Jesus Christ Way, Truth and life and “Whatever is true, honorable, just…”(Phi 4:8) adapting to and respecting the various human and cultural realities. Single: has common editorial priorities and the same requirements in organization and coordination at national and international levels; Multimedia: is a protagonist in its thinking on the culture of communication and utilizes languages, and technologies, according to necessities, contexts and situations; Pauline: imitates the apostolic zeal of St. Paul, knowing how to involve various collaborators and fulfilling their proper mission within the culture of communication.
