With the apostolic mandate of Christ “go into the whole world and preach the good-news” (Mark 16:15), the church received the responsibility of feeding the body and soul of her members. Down the ages and through different epochs in her history, the church has made frantic efforts in carrying this mission charged to her care by Christ through various means and media. In the present age, the electronic and print media present a veritable medium through which the church could reach out to the body and soul of her members with the view of keeping both the body and soul actively together bearing in mind the Latin dictum Mensana in Copore Sano which literarily translates into “a healthy mind in a healthy body”.

This was the birth of The Choice Flame Newspaper in the Catholic Diocese of Enugu with a view of reaching out to the Faithful within and outside the diocese.
