According to the Pope, upon its accession to the European Union, Lithuania is exposed to an "influx of ideologies that would introduce elements of destabilization for families, fruit of a poorly understood sense of personal freedom."

The Pope invited the prelates to a "constructive dialogue with all, even those who do not belong to the Church or are far from the religious experience".
