"The other thing about work or job is a very common sense these days that people who are into the psychology of achievement will regularly tell you that one cannot be happy when he doesn't know where his next paycheck is coming from.”  

Benedict XVI also addressed world hunger and the rise of food prices. He recalled the importance of protecting marriage and family, to respect life and to defend freedom of religion.

The message also asks to learn to forgive, not seek revenge, to recognize one's faults, and to not demand apologies from others.
