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”.

Benedict XVI references Anglican communion during weekly general audience

2010-01-20

That’s why he called on all to reflect on the tragedy of their divisions and to pray with him.

Benedict XVI
“Today’s increasingly secularized society urgently requires  united witness to Jesus Christ grounded in a common profession of faith.”

The pope also urged for more cooperation between separated Christians and resolve existing divisions. Still he said there has been “great progress” in ecumenical dialogue over the past century and “positive steps” over the last year.

He specifically pointed to the Archbishop of Canterbury’s visit to Rome, in light of the Anglican communion.

Benedict XVI
“During this week I ask all of you to join me in praying for these intentions, in thanking God for the ecumenical progress made in the past year.”

The pope said division not only contradict the will expressed by Jesus, but it damages the holy cause of preaching the Gospel.
