The editors and journalists also had the clear notion that they were accountable before God for every word printed, photo chosen or ad allowed.
Today, we have the official organ of the Holy See, L'Osseratore Romano, promoting an advertisement for massages on the portal of its English edition (June 23, 2013), above. The ad was paid by the MSC cruise company, which offers a free series of massages for the Catholics who purchase one of its tickets.
