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”.

As a Cardinal, Joseph Ratzinger was very fond of this particular saint,which is why he chose the name Benedict when he was elected pope.

Speaking before the saint’s tomb, Benedict told his listeners that the search for God should be central to their lives.

Benedict XVI
“A person is not fully human and cannot be truly happy (when trying to live) without God. It’s up to you, dear monks, to be living examples of this interior and profound relationship with Him.”

The pope highlighted how Saint Benedict contributed to western culturethanks to the monasteries he established. Benedict said these were thehubs of education in the search for the common good and the path to God.

Benedict XVI
“He was a master of civilization. He called for a balanced andappropriate vision of divine requirements and of the ultimate purposeof man. He also took into account the needs and the motivations of theheart in order to teach and to bring about a genuine and lastingbrotherhood.”

Before leaving, the pope encouraged the Benedictine monks to continuethe work of evangelization and human promotion started by SaintBenedict in that same abbey in the year 529.

Montecassino is also a landmark of World War II. It was bombed and destroyed by the allies and rebuilt after the war.

It marked the fourth time in history that the abbey had been destroyed and later rebuilt.

The pope also visited a nearby Polish cemetery where 1,052 soldiers are buried.

Benedict XVI
Send the Holy Spirit so that the people of our age may understand thatthe gift of peace is much more (precious) than any material good. ,

He also remembered those suffering from wars today. He prayed that allmay be enlightened with the virtues of peace and learn to trust in acivilization of love.
