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”.

Vatican: 37 missionaries killed in 2009

2009-12-31

One of them could be considered a martyr since it appears he died a victim of a religious hate crime.

We’re talking about James Mukalel, who was killed in Mangalore, India in late July.

But the largest blood bath took place in Latin America, where 21 missionaries have lost their lives. 6 missionaries died in Brazil, one of them was Spanish and another Italian. 6 others died in Colombia, 3 in Mexico, 2 Spanish priests were killed in Cuba, 2 in el Salvador, an American priest in Guatemala and another priest in Honduras.

The continent with the second largest number of missionaries killed while on duty is Africa. 4 died in Congo along with 4 priests in South Africa including one from France and another from Austria. An Italian and Irish priest were killed in Kenya and another priest was killed in Burundi.

In Asia, two priests died, including one in India as a result of anti-Christian sentiment.

Two missionaries died in the United States, a religious in New Mexico and a priest in New Jersey.

Meanwhile, Europe is the continent at the bottom of the list, that’s where Louis Jousseaume, a French priest was killed by an ill person he was looking after.

The Vatican hopes these violent acts come to an end and by publishing the names of those who lost their lives, their hard work will live on.
