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”.

Google remembers Moscow's St. Basil's Cathedral

The search engine decorated its logo with a picture of the famous Orthodox church, known for its multicolored dome-shaped architecture.

The prince known as “Ivan the Terrible” ordered its construction in 1554 as a way to commemorate the conquest of Kazan. Its official name was The Cathedral of the Intercession of Mary, because it was blessed on October 1st, the day dedicated to this feast.

The Church is surrounded by history, including  the failed attempt of Napoleon who according to legend, tried to transfer the structure to Paris. In 1918 the communist  party confiscated the items inside the Church before closing it. The building was later turned into a museum, but in 1990 after almost 70 years it was reopened for worship.
