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”.

Cameroon‘s Ambassador To The Holy See Comments On Pope‘s Trip

2009-04-02

His first stop is Cameroon, where he’ll celebrate an open air mass at a stadium in Yaounde, the country’s capitol, and attend an African bishops conference. Here, Benedict is expected to deliver the working document of the synod of African bishops set to take place in Rome in October.

Africa’s Christian community is one of the fastest growing ones in the world. In Cameroon, about a quarter of its population is Catholic, some four million people.

Cameroon’s ambassador to the Holy See, Antoine Zanga, says the Pope’s trip is both a pastoral and a diplomatic visit. He says the people of Cameroon hope the trip will be a message of peace to a divided part of the world.


Antoine Zanga
Cameroonian Ambassador to the Holy See
When the Holy Father comes to visit Africa and Cameroon, we expect him to announce a message of peace, a message of reconciliation, a message of hope. For this reason, the visit of the Holy Father in Cameroon in particular and in Africa is so important.


While in Cameroon, the Pope has a special visit on his itinerary. He’ll visit the sick at a local hospital.

Antoine Zanga
Cameroonian Ambassador to the Holy See
The visit to the sick is very important because the site he chooses is an institute built and financed with funds from Canadian cardinal Paul Emile-Léger, the old archbishop of Ottawa who retires in Cameroon to get in touch with the world of sufferance and handicap.


The pope also plans to meet with representatives of Cameroon’s Muslim community before arriving in Angola, the second leg of his trip.


There he will meet with the country’s bishops and youth, and he’ll recite the Angelus on Sunday the 22. His visit coincides with a very special time for Angola. The 500th anniversary of the country’s evangelization.
