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
“I will bless the statue as a sign of affection to all the brothers and sisters in that country, who are celebrating its bicentennial and it will be with you in these very difficult times following the recent earthquake.”

Benedict XVI blessed a statue of Chile’s patroness, Our Lady of Mt. Carmel and greeted a Chilean delegation.

This week, Pope Benedict XVI dedicated the General Audience to St. Albert the Great, whom he described as "one of the greatest masters of scholastic theology.”

St. Albert, who was German and born in the 13th century, served as the Bishop of Regensburg. He was later canonized, declared a Doctor of the Church and became the patron saint of the natural sciences.

Benedict XVI
“St. Albert shows us that faith is not opposed to reason, and that the created world can be seen as a ‘book’ written by God and capable of being ‘read’ in its own way by the various sciences.”

The Pope concluded his catechesis by asking God to continue gracing the Church with, pious and wise theologians like St. Albert the Great.
