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”.

Israel Foresees A Papal Trip To The Holy Land In May

The trip would take place during a sensitive time for relations between Jews and Catholics.

During the past few weeks, Benedict XVI has received many petitions calling for a halt in the canonization process of Pius XII until the publication of documents from his papacy that will determine whether or not he aided Jews during World War II.

Israel and the Vatican continue their negotiations which began in 1994 to determine the legal status of the Church in Israel, extensions to pay taxes, and visas for religious Arabs.

If the trip is confirmed, Benedict XVI would be the third pope to visit the Holy Land. Paul VI briefly visited Jerusalem in 1964, and John Paul II visited holy places during the jubilee year in 2000.
