Bishop Eugenio Lira Rugarcia, secretary general of the Mexican Bishops’ Conference, has announced that the bishops will be launching an official internet radio station in the coming days.

In its initial stages, the internet radio will have only one program, he explained, and “for now it will not be on 24 hours.” 

“Even though it will be short, we want it to be good and to have good content,” he said.

Bishop Lira Rugarcia noted that the Church is not violating Mexican law by broadcasting over the internet. 

“There is no problem with regards to the law,” he stressed.

“The law is very specific and states that religious associations cannot have radio or television stations either on their own accord or through third parties. This does not include the internet or the social networks.”

The bishop said a similar initiative with online television could be possible in the future. 

“We have to move forward a little at a time, to see if it is doable,” he explained.
