The normal family, united in matrimony with two or more children, "is happier," says Card Antonelli. It shapes in a positive way society and the workplace. Cultural, political and economic forces must support it. For Card Scola, the meeting is an exceptional event that can support ordinary life.

Family as a safe asset in a precarious world and workplace
For the theological pastoral congress currently underway at the World Meeting of Families, the family and the workplace must urgently strike an alliance. In opposition to individualism, the experience and social doctrine of the Church emphasise the relational nature of man. Freely giving and meaning give work its value. Card Tettamanzi criticises the excessive remunerations in banking, industry and sports. For Chilean scholar Morandé Court, the family is an important opportunity to give work quality, which today is no longer based on production or capital, but on "creating human capital". Participants express their solidarity to quake victims in Emilia-Romagna.
