Blessed Alberione told us that “A good part of today’s world suffers from a shortage of bread. There is a far greater shortage of the spiritual bread brought by Jesus. ‘I am the Bread of Life,’ he said. Countless people live complexly unaware of their destiny. They have no other thought than the present. Yet in a short time, death brings them to eternity. There are few to prepare them with this bread. 'There is no one to break it for them.' They die of hunger without truly understanding their hunger. Jesus is Bread/Truth. The apostle of the media of communication is another Jesus Christ who echoes and amplifies to people of every age and place what Jesus preached and taught on earth.”
Brother Al Milella tells us that “The world has not yet felt the full, exhilarating influence of the Good News. When it does it will be transformed. At present, it goes about dazed and diverted by its own hunger for something undefined.... What is conversion if not a head-on collision with the Word, either in Scripture, in a saintly life, or in the action of charity? Out of its own devotion to Jesus Master, Way, Truth and Life is born a means to sanctify man's mind, will and heart.” Sister Veritas Grau also spoke of this hunger amidst the plenty of new technology: “It is taken for granted that this technological progress will automatically lead to a better quality of human life; deeper questions are ignored, such as those that relate to human nature, its hunger for communion, and its thrust toward transcendence and ultimate meaning.”
- The apostle of the media broadcasts Jesus Way who leads us to fullness of life in the Trinity.
- The apostle of the media communicates Jesus Truth who said "This is why I was born and why I came into the world, to bear witness to the truth." He inspires the search for truth and knows the questions of our hearts: Who am I? Where am I going? For Blessed Alberione it is Christ who asks the questions, challenging the world to give an account of itself, of its deepest hopes and needs, and whether or not it is seeking what will truly make it happy.
- The apostle of the media extends the invitation of Jesus Life who said “I came that they may have life and have it more abundantly." The media centers are open doors to this gratuity of God’s grace and authentic love.
In Ephesians 2:19-22 Paul says that: “In Christ the whole building is joined together and grows into a holy temple of the Lord. In Him you are being built together into God’s dwelling place in the Spirit.” This is the Pauline center – the building of God. In 1 Corinthians 3:9 we read: “We are God’s co-workers. You are God’s field, God’s building.” “The house where the light of the Gospel must shine is the house where each one of us lives and also a house open to the world… .Blessed James Alberione, apostle of communications, said we are all called to the Christian apostolate, every one is called to co-operate in the task of transforming the world, to build together a world of fraternity and solidarity where human and Christian values shine in lives and in social structures.”
 Fr. Alberione in 1949 in the introduction to the book of Fr. Lamera: the Founder summarizes his global vision of the Pauline formation and where the expression, "At the center is Jesus Christ Way, Truth and Life,"
