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”.

"God has blessed us. We have a very honest heart and we are here to pray.”

Along with their parishioner, they came to pray, dance and sing, as a way to express their devotion to their Catholic religion.  Holding hands, they danced and sung right in front of the Vatican.

In fact, some of the pilgrims in this group are over 80 years old.

"This is a special pilgrim group. We are all from Taiwan and we are Catholic.”


Only about 1.5 percent of Taiwan's population is Catholic, which is roughly about 300,000 people. The majority of the country is actually Buddhist.

But even though they're in the minority, this group decided to mark the occasion and their trip, by offering perhaps the simplest yet most powerful gifts- their prayers and songs.
