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”.

John Paul II Film Premieres at the Vatican

Thanks to this film, based on documented materials and historical narrative, viewers who did not know John Paul II have a way to realize the heart and the evangelical passion.  For those of us that knew him, the film offers an opportunity to relive some moments of his life with profound emotions.  

Cardinal Stanislaw Dsiwisz, the archbishop of Krakow was John Paul II’s personal secretary for nearly 40 years.  He came to the Vatican to promote “Testimony,” based on his memoir of his four decades of service at the Pope’s side.  

While taking questions from reporters, the cardinal spoke of personal recollections of the late pontiff.   He said John Paul’s Polish nationality was a central part of his identity as a person and as the leader of the Church.

He said: “I serve because the Lord has called me to this point as a Pole.  Poland prepared me, the Church prepared me.  I want to serve, but I’ve never had an inferiority complex being from a country not as important as the United States.”

Even though John Paul II passed away three years ago, Cardinal Dsiwisz still seeks his guidance.

I feel that he is with me.  I don’t feel alone.  I must say that when there are problems, I say ‘Holy Father, will you help me?’  I was with him for so many years, now I expect his help.  

He also spoke about the beatification process for John Paul II.  Cardinal Dziwisz hopes he will be canonized soon.

We are still waiting for a saint, we are waiting for the coronation of all saints that are in Krakow.  This is our great wish and we pray, we hope that it will come during our lifetimes.  

The film’s release will truly be global, with language versions in English, Spanish, Polish, German, French, and Italian.
