"Religion is fundamental because it sanctifies marriage, family and the duties of paternity and maternity. Therefore, that civil responsibility is fundamental for the development of democracy.”

Within the lecture, he warned that the "openness” and freedom of religion in the West can sometimes dilute the main message within religion.

Nonetheless, he said there are ways to rebuild the cultural identity and fight against apathy. This is his suggestion:

"Regain lost hope and rebuild from the hope a sense of charity, of respect, of reconciliation, of forgiveness, always with enthusiasm. And to find  solutions that will be difficult. But positive and creative solutions that will stimulate our growth together.”

Patriarca added that motivation and creativity are key to restoring a sense of community and ethical balance to achieve growth.
