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”.

“Our bishop was very excited about the centenary of the diocese so he encouraged us to go by bike or motorcycle. In fact he rode with the group of cyclists and then joined us for two days.  It was something unique.”

A total of 22 people, including five priests, traveled by motorbike, which means that in four days, they traveled more than 1050 miles. By doing so, they proved that one can also be an apostle on a motorbike.

“It is important to be close to motorists. I started riding four years ago. Many of them are good people but you have to talk to them and get to know them to bring them closer to the Church.”

So to take advantage of their time here in Rome, the group will of course celebrate this key anniversary. But it will also do some sightseeing while visiting the center of Christianity.
