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: Young people are the key to find a way out of the economic crisis

2011-12-16

Cardinal Peter Turkson, president of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, and his number two Mario Toso have prepared the text along with the pope, and presented it at the Vatican.

Card. Peter Turkson
President, Pont. Council for Justice and Peace
“Young people, with their hope, their enthusiasm and their desire to live, can already contribute much to the other generations.”

Bishop Mario Toso
Secretary, Pont. Council for Justice and Peace
“This is to prepare the new generations that gradually enter into society, with a comprehensive education to contribute effectively to the common good and build toward a just and peaceful society.”

The pope also denounced the difficulties one faces to “form a family, find a stable job, or contribute to politics, culture or the economy”.

How to bet on future generations we must go for the family, Benedict said the “hectic lifestyle” or “working conditions which are often incompatible with family responsibilities,” deprive children of “the presence of parents”. To resolve this, he asked for political measures to “support parents”.

But according to the Vatican, the responsibility belongs to everyone, not just public institutions.

Msgr. Mario Toso
Secretary, Pont. Council for Justice and Peace

“If public institutions can not take the initiative, civil society should do so. And if the civil society has good ideas, the public institutions will probably imitate.”

In the address, the pope effectively calls on all sectors, from the school systems, media, and those in politics or the economy, to “communicate the positive value of life and encourage them to spend in the service of Good”.

It is ultimately meant to recognize the dignity of each person and give a more human face to the economy.
