Mass media: learning a more authentic and human communication from the family
In his message for the 49th World Day of Social Communications, Pope Francis calls the family "the paradigm of communication." In it, as in the womb, you learn encounter, language, prayer, closeness, forgiveness. The media often treat the family as "an object" over which to wage ideological battles and not as a place in which to learn to communicate. We need to "relearn to tell, not just to produce and consume information".

Pope: God’s “work” is reconciliation, because "our God forgives" any sin and "always" forgives
No matter how serious the sins are all you need to do is "repent and ask for forgiveness": "you do not have to pay anything," because "Christ already paid for us". Confession "more than a judgment, is an encounter” with the Lord who "embraces you." "Teach our children, our young people to confess well, so that going to confession is not like going to the dry cleaners to remove a stain. No! It is going to meet the Father."
