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 asks for prayers for his trip to the United Kingdom

2010-09-13

Benedict XVI
“I ask you all to accompany me with your prayers during this trip. My heartfelt thanks to you all.”

The Pope will leave this Thursday, 16 September, and visit Edinburgh, Glasgow and London. He is due to return to Castelgandolfo on Sunday 19th.

During the Angelus prayer at his summer residence, the Pope remarked on the beatification of a Capuchin friar, Fray Leopoldo de Alpandeire, in Granada, Spain. His example, the Pope said, may help everyone to serve God with a sincere heart.

Benedict XVI
“The life of this simple and austere Capuchin religious is a hymn to humility and to trust in God, as well as a shining example of devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary.”

Fray Leopoldo de Alpandeire was born in Spain  in 1864. He became a Capuchin friar at the age of 35. From that moment he dedicated his life to asking alms for his convent, the missions and the poor of Granada. In exchange he always gave three Hail Marys. He died in 1956.

During the Angelus, the Pope also reflected upon the subject of God-s mercy, on the basis of the Parable of the Prodigal Son.

Benedict XVI
“Jesus speaks to us of the joy in Heaven when a sinner returns to the House of the Father. May His words encourage us always to trust in the merciful love of God, and in His forgiveness”.

The Pope also greeted a group of bishops and other participants who have come from all over the world for an ecumenical gathering organised by the Focolari movement.
