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”.

Book addresses “100 prejudices” faced by Benedict XVI


Mario Galgano
Author, "100 prejudices about  Benedict XVI”

"When Benedict XVI was elected seven years ago, I heard so many prejudices. So I became interested in them and started to collect them as a journalist and got the idea of writing a book.”

The book addresses these criticisms in three different categories. The first, is about Benedict XVI-as a person, the second, on the theology of Pope and the third on his Magisterium.

Author, "100 prejudices about Benedict XVI”

"They are 100 prejudices that I try to correct. I don’t confirm them. But this does not mean that the Pope is perfect, which he says the same thing. Benedict XVI says he is human, with strengths and weaknesses. Because it is to be human, you can’t be perfect, but accept criticism while staying positive.”

For now, the book is only in German and French, but Galgano has plans to release it in Italian, English and Spanish. His hope is to offer a contrast to the negative opinions often published in the media.

To get to the bottom of each one of these opinions, the Swiss author interviews many of the people that work with the pope on a daily basis.

"I went to primary sources, people who best know the Pope, those who work with him. These are his closest collaborators, people living with him and that know his habits, his life, his way of working and thinking.”

Mario Galgano gave Benedict XVI the German and French version of his book. In fact, the author said the Pope thought the idea was unique, especially since it focused on his personal criticisms.  Its a book that offers an inside look at the real Benedict XVI.
