Pope Francis: No people is criminal and no religion is terrorist

February 17, 2017. Pope Francis has sent an important message to the Meetings of Popular Movements that is taking place in Modesto (California). 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”.

2009-04-02

The Pope remembered the martyrs of the Armenian Church and the Armenian genocide, without explicitly mentioning it, and denounced the persecution of Christians in modern times.

Benedict XVI
That testimony culminated in the twentieth century, which proved a time of unspeakable suffering for your people.  Most recently we have all been saddened by the escalation of persecution and violence against Christians in parts of the Middle East and elsewhere.

The Catholicos is based in Lebanon. That is why, the Pope said, he prays every day for peace in this country and throughout the Middle East. Benedict XVI said there will only be peace in the region when each country is free to decide its own destiny and when every ethnic and religious group accepts and respects the others.

Aram I emphasized that the churches must be means for peace and to achieve that they must recognize "all" genocides, even the Armenian.

The Catholicos recalled his meeting with John Paul II, adding that this visit represents a new step for ecumenical dialogue.
