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”.

The Pope has said faith and reason are inextricably linked as both seek the truth.

Benedict XVI

“Monastic theology grew out of the prayerful contemplation of the Scriptures and the texts of the Church Fathers, stressing their interior unity and spiritual meaning, centred on the mystery of Christ.”

Benedict XVI also recalled St. Thomas and St. Bonaventure as an example of understanding of faith through reason.

At this hearing there have been some changes. For example, a passage from the book of Psalms was read before the Pope outlined his catechesis in which he also recited in Portuguese.
