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”.

"Hiroshima and Nagasaki continue to be perennial tragedies where atomic energy was used for purposes of war, sowing death of unspeakable proportions."

Pentecost Sunday marks the last day of Easter and celebrates the gift of the Holy Spirit, as recounted in the Gospels. The pope explained that the Holy Spirit is to spiritual life what air is to biological life. That’s why, he said, when the heart is impure, so is the soul.

Benedict XVI
"People become  used to impure products of the mind and heart that circulate in society. They include images that sensationalize pleasure, violence or hatred for men and women, something no longer considered a serious problem."

On hand in St. Paul’s Basilica were an orchestra from Cologne, Germany, and the chorus of the city’s cathedral. The pope’s brother also attended the celebration.

They performed some pieces by Joseph Haydn to mark the 200th anniversary of his death. The pope thanked the musicians and said Haydn’s work was “magnificent music for the glory of God.”
