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”.

Pope ordains 19 priests

2009-05-04

The Pope told them the being a priest meant being saintly and that they shouldn’t be surprised if the world doesn’t want to listen to them.

Benedict XVI
"Jesus experienced personally how the world rejected God, misunderstanding, indifference and the disfiguration of the face of God. Then, Jesus passed this on to his disciples."  

He asked them to love the world, but not to be mundane, and to remain calm if this mundane mentality affects Catholics or even priests. He said to avoid this, they should maintain a personal relationship with God.

Benedict XVI
"Learn from the Virgin how to always be men of prayer and service so you become holy priests in the image of the heart of God."

Shortly after the ceremony, the Pope asked Catholics all over the world to pray so that there be more young people willing to look toward priesthood.
