Sacrosanctum Concilium 20

Reading about the emerging media in Vatican II is always interesting. Here, the council bishops acknowledge television as a media force, but they acknowledge the bishop may not be the most competent to make judgments.

Transmissions of the sacred rites by radio and television shall be done with discretion and dignity, under the leadership and direction of a suitable person appointed for this office by the bishops. This is especially important when the service to be broadcast is the Mass.

Do you think this “suitable person” was foreseen to be a regional or national person? Would the bishops have thought the day was near when every diocese might need such an individual?
