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”.

The Church and Lefebvrists: Pope names new vice-president for the Ecclesia Dei Commission

2012-06-27

According to the Vatican, "the appointment of a high-ranking prelate to this position is a sign of the Holy Father’s strong desire for the reconciliation of  traditionalist communities not in union with the See of Peter.”

The Pope is also hoping that Di Noia's strong relationship with the Jewish community, will help solve concerns between Catholics and Jews, especially since Lefebvrists, don't agree with inter-religious dialogue.

Di Noia, who is 68 years old, was born in New York and is currently serving as the Archbishop of Oregon City. Up until recently, he served as the secretary for the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments.  That post will now be taken by Bishop Arthur Roche.
