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”.

Karol Wojtyla‘s Silence

2009-04-06

The Totus Tuus exhibit contains sixty drawings depicting the forced silence of Karol Wojtyla.

Italian artist Nani Tedeschi captured the Pope’s pain during his last days.

The charcoal sketches show the agony of John Paul II….a weakness he turned into a strength.

An image the world will never forget.
 
Msgr. Mauro Parmeggiani
Secretary, Vicariate of Rome
It was that warmth and affection he showed us throughout the years, especially when he was sick.  That apparent weakness showed us how great God is.  Through human weakness, He is close to us with His love and mercy.

The Italian painter was inspired by John Paul II’s last audience on March 30, 2005.  Just three days before his death, he made an appearance before the world….his silent cry spoke volumes.

A lesson in suffering in charcoals…now on display until June.
