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”.

"Some children came and told me, 'Take me with you because you'll be near the pope'. I told them it was very difficult but what I could do was bring the pope a letter that they wrote. And that's how this whole initiative with the kids letters began.”

Rosa Maria's small invitation to a child turned into 500 letters with pictures, drawings and messages from Mexican children to the Pope.

"There were letters I read that said, 'I can't see you personally, I could not be on the fence because I'm sick, I couldn't be there but I saw you on TV and that made me very happy, and maybe one day I'll come to see you and I am praying for you.”

Rosa Maria Ordaz considers herself an ambassador for these children and a bridge between Mexico and the Vatican. These letters will soon be delivered to Benedict XVI and she hopes to bring a response back to the children.
