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).

“I didn’t approach  this role or others like Joan of Arc as a Catholic, but more as a human being curious about these larger than life figures that changed the course of history and took one path instead of another.”

The pope, who admires Saint Augustine, got a private screening of the series.

Benedict XVI
“In a context that is very remote for us today, we’ve seen how despite the reality of human life-with its problems, misfortunes, and failures-that the Truth is stronger in overcoming any obstacle and reaches the human person.”

Benedicto XVI had the opportunity to meet Monica Guerritore and the rest of the film’s actors afterward, and he thanked them for their hard work in producing the film.
