Communication plays a leading role in today's society and the Catholic Church is no different in this respect. In recent years, even the Church was forced to make changes in order to keep up with modern times. This collective monograph presents a closer look at this subject from multiple spheres of human activity, such as communication with the media, or it analyzes trends in the Czech language which are appearing in religious expressions. It also looks for answers to questions such as how does the Church react to the usage and influence of social networks and what does Pope Francis, its highest official, have to say on the subject? For the sake of completeness, it also offers the thoughts of Msgr. Tomáš Holub, who is currently the Secretary General of the Czech Bishops' Conference. It considers the strengths and weaknesses of Church communication and presents the plans of the Catholic Church in the near future.
