Mentioning Sources

Peruvian prelate Juan Luis Cipriani, Lima’s cardinal archbishop, is dropped from a journalism assignment. El Comercio won’t publish any more of his columns because he cited long passages from Popes Paul VI and Benedict XVI without attribution.

A writer must attribute. Otherwise, one might consider writing book reviews.

An effective writer–or teacher–must have a way to absorb Church teaching from any source, and be able to adapt and reframe in such a way to communicate most effectively to the audience.
