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”.

This isn’t a course thought to speak about the Church in an apologetic way, instead it gives information on the Church from a professional, informative and very scientific point of view. It  is definitely very academic.

 

Among the topics that will be covered this year are: the historicity of the Gospels, inter-religious dialogue and the relationship between Church and Science.

For example, we talk about the Church and nature, the economic crisis seen from a Christian point of view, the structure of the roman curia and the moral structure of the Church when covering issues related to sexual ethics.

 

The initiative was born in 2006 at the request of journalists and "vaticanists" covering the Vatican.

It shows how important it is to be up to date because the Holy See is the religious source, and although is ancient it’s in constant dynamism, thus forcing us to learn, study in depth and find new points of reference
to work more professionally.


The ideal way to inform about the Catholic Church, as one of the participants says, is through in-depth study and by keeping close contact with the people that really know it.
