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.

"St. Augustine is buried in the Basilica of San Pietro in Ciel d'Oro located in Pavia, since the eighth century. Few know that St. Augustine died at Hippo, but his body was brought to Sardinia after the year 480, and from Sardinia to Pavia in the eighth century.”

The remains of St. Augustine have rested in this town in northern Italy since the year 725. The tomb where he rests was built in 1362. Each year thousands of pilgrims go to Pavia to venerate the saint.

"The body of St. Augustine has been buried in Pavia since 725. Since then, a continuous wave of people pilgrimage to the Basilica of San Pietro in Ciel d'Oro to pay homage and pray to this saint and Doctor of the Church.”

Benedict XVI has always had strong ties with St. Augustine. In fact, the papal seal includes a shell, which represents St. Augustine and his faith.

The second part of his encyclical 'Deus Caritas Est' begins with a quote from St. Augustine. Benedict XVI also visited his grave two years after he became pope.
