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.

Accordinf the Vatican Information Service, the Pope first addressed the diplomats as a group and then gave each of them a speech in written form concerning issues specific to his or her own country.

The Pope focused his collective remarks on the subject of human fraternity, in which context he recalled appeals made over the course of the year "for Haiti, devastated first by the earthquake and them by the cholera epidemic. Unfortunately", he said, "other tragedies have taken place in a number of nations this year. Your own countries, the international community and the voluntary sector have responded to the urgent appeals for aid, aid which must certainly continue and intensify. For her part the Church, through her various institutions, also contributes in many ways over the course of time".

Pope Benedict denounced that “the great ideal of fraternity has become a dead letter in contemporary political societies, due above all to the influence of individualist and collectivist ideologies”.
