” “” “VII WORLD MEETING OF FAMILIES: BENEDICT XVI, "WORK AND FEAST" IN TODAY’S FAMILY (2)” “” “

To counter the risk of family "breakdown", Benedict XVI in his Letter called for "reflection and commitment to conciliate the needs and times of work with those of the family and to rediscover the true meaning of the feast, especially on Sunday, the weekly Easter, the day of the Lord and of man, the day of the family, of the community, of solidarity". He went on to highlight that "the next World Meeting of Families is a privileged opportunity for rethinking work and feast in the perspective of a united family, open to life, well integrated into society and into the Church, attentive not only to the economy of its members, but also to the quality of its relations". Then the Pope said that, "for the event to be fruitful, it should not remain isolated, but rather be inserted into a suitable preparation process". He expressed the hope that "a suitable programme with initiatives at parish, diocesan and national levels aimed at highlighting experiences of work and feast in their more positive and authentic aspects may be established already in the course of 2011, the 30th anniversary of the Apostolic Exhortation Familiaris consortio, the ‘Magna Charta’ for the pastoral care of the family". ” ” ” “
