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”.

2010-09-17

Speaking clearly and directly, the Pope encouraged them to become saints.

Benedict XVI
“I hope that among those of you listening to me today there are some of the future saints of the twenty-first century. What God wants most of all for each one of you is that you should become holy. He loves you much more than you could ever begin to imagine, and he wants the very best for you”.

The Pope warned young people from England, Wales and Scotland against the dangers of materialism, of seeking success at all costs, and of forgetting the dignity of man.

As a university professor, Benedict XVI encouraged them to dedicate themselves to study and to make good use of their years at university in order to then be able to offer the best of themselves to society, without narrowing their professional horizons.
 
Benedict XVI
“We need good historians and philosophers and economists, but if the account they give of human life within their particular field is too narrow focused, they can lead us seriously astray”.


The Pope explained that the relationship between faith and reason is vital in education, and in the subsequent development of professional life.

Before concluding his remarks, Benedict XVI invited young people of the United Kingdom to World Youth Day 2011, due to be held in Madrid.

Benedict XVI
“I hope to see many of you next August, at the World Youth Day in Madrid. In the meantime, may God bless you!”

A Gospel choir sang to bid Benedict XVI farewell. Thus far the Pope has travelled 712 kilometers in internal transfers, and has seen nearly 400,000 people.
