The theme of this years’ conference was “BMORE Faithful.” Next year’s meeting will be held in Atlanta.

Cardinal Wilton D. Gregory of Washington celebrated the closing Mass for the Catholic Media Conference at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Baltimore on June 9.

He told the journalists and communications professionals that their calling is “to heal the blindness that too often distorts the eyes and confuses the hearts of people in our world.”

“You are the people who are directly engaged in the revelation of things that are concealed and hidden, but also life-giving for our church,” the cardinal said. “The work of revelation in which you are engaged is also about the hopeful, the uplifting, the spirit-building, the works of God.
