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”.

Pope Benedict XVI to visit Lutheran Church in Rome

2010-01-25

The visit will take place March 14th. This visit comes on the heels of other meetings he’s had with Lutherans at the Vatican.

The President of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity, Cardinal Walter Kasper hinted of a possible visit during a press conference in October.

The visit is part of the Church’s call for ecumenical dialogue and the search for all Christians including Lutherans, to share the same fundamentals of the Christian faith.

This isn’t the time the pope shows a sign of strengthening relations between Catholics and Lutherans. In November of 2009, the pope celebrated the 10th anniversary of the Joint Declaration of the Doctrine of Justification between Catholics and Lutherans.

The declaration marked the end of the one of the issues that split both sides since the Reformation, after both acknowledged that faith and acts of faith are necessary for ones salvation.
