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 presides end of May ceremony at Vatican gardens

2010-06-01

 One of the most emotional ceremonies of the year.

Benedict XVI
We want to contemplate Our Lady in the mystery of the Visitation. In the Virgin who goes to visit her relative Elizabeth we recognize the clearest example and the truest meaning of our path as believers and the path of the Church itself.”

After praying the rosary, the pope said at the replica of the grotto of Lourdes the “only treasure” Christians can give to humanity is Jesus.

The pope said the Church is missionary and therefore must look outside itself and not stand still. He used as an example the Virgin Mary who did not hesitate in traveling far from home to visit her cousin Isabel and help her during her pregnancy.

Benedict XVI
Mary’s journey is missionary. It is a trip that takes her far from home, pushes her to the world, to strange places for her daily habits.”

Benedict XVI pointed out that to continue this example Christians and all the Church should abandon their comforts and get closer to others.

He also highlighted the charity of Mary which not only resulted in specific acts, like helping Isabel, but she gave her own son.
