· Pope Francis in Ecuador points to the path of solidarity ·
The family is a place where human relations are not based on waste-producing competition but on gratitude, solidarity and subsidiarity.
This is the path which Pope Francis pointed to at his meeting with civil society in Ecuador — political authorities, artisans, trade unionists, representatives of ethnic groups and social movements — on Tuesday evening, 7 July, at the conclusion of the third day in the country. The Pope addressed a sweeping address to them, centered on the need to redefine the face of society and of human relationships “beginning with family life”, where, according to Francis, we are educated in the fundamental values of love, fraternity and mutual respect which translate into essential values for society.
