Established by the UN General Assembly in 1993, the May 3rd observance of World Press Freedom Day reminded us of threats to reporters, including the targeted killing of five Capital Gazette employees in Annapolis, Maryland, last June and the murder of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi in Saudi Arabia this past October. According to recent news reports, the Department of Homeland Security has created dossiers on journalists, activists and attorneys who had been placed on a watch list while working on our southern border. Several journalists on this list have sometimes been denied entry into Mexico; others were asked to identify people from photographs taken of the migrant caravans. Without reliable information of government policies and the consequences of such policies, we cannot perform our social responsibilities or exercise our rights. Let us pray to Mary, Mother of Wisdom, to seek to know and speak truth and respond with concern for the common good.
