The dance of the family

This issue of Women Church World is an invitation to abandon all stereotypes about the family. This call goes out to those who want it to be stable and perfect, or those who believe it has now been destroyed, to those who consider it only a refuge, those who despise it, those who think that “fortunately it exists” and those who believe that “it is no longer the family it once was”. In her dialogue with Marco Girardo, Chiara Giaccardi explains -by way of an evocative image- that the family is “a dance”, an imperfect choreography, that is both fragile, yet still in movement, and which is the essence of life.
