The pope denounces the "moral blindness of this indifference”: "under the guise of what is politically correct or ideologically fashionable, one looks at those who suffer without touching them. But they are televised live; they are talked about in euphemisms and with apparent tolerance, but nothing is done systematically to heal the social wounds or to confront the structures that leave so many brothers and sisters by the wayside”.

"Inevitably we must improve the quality of the programs so that it can actually be appealing for ordinary people, especially those far from the Church, to watch a TV show with a Catholic orientation.”

The meeting was supported by the Vatican and the Latin American Episcopal Conference.

The president of the Pontifical Council for Social Communications suggested it's necessary for society to see the beauty of family. And that doesn't mean perfect family life.

President, Pontifical Council for Social Communications 
"Sometimes there are appearances from couples but it seems that they're already in the process of beatification. I believe that a real family must tell the stories of its struggles, its challenges, its difficulties.”

The meeting was organized by SIPCATV, an international organization for producers and TV channels in Latin America.
