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”.

2011-06-24

He explained the meaning of the event for Catholics.

Benedict XVI
“While Holy Thursday commemorates the mystery of Christ who gives us the bread and wine, today, on the feast of Corpus Christi, the same mystery is proposed to the People of God to worship Him and think about Him.”

In his homily, the pope explained that the Eucharist comes from a profound act of love of God, saying communion creates bonds among recipients.

Benedict XVI
“Eucharistic Communion unites one with the person their side, you may not get along, but also unites us to those who are far away, in anyplace in the world. Hence, from the Eucharist, comes the deep sense of social work of the Church.”

After the Mass, the pope accompanied the Eucharist in a procession that was close to a mile through the streets of Rome.

With him were the cardinals and bishops of the Roman Curia as well as thousands of citizens.

Benedict XVI was on his knees for most of the journey, especially in the street Via Merulana, that unites the Basilicas of St. John Lateran and Saint Mary Major.

There the pope stopped to pray for a moment and blessed the participants along with the Eucharist.
