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”.

GERARDO CARCAR
Organizer, Conference 2014 (Rome)

"In the year 2014 that will marks 100 years of the Schoenstatt Movement, we want to celebrate looking back to thank God's gifts, but also to discover what is the order of God for us at this time.”

The members of this movement are mostly families and young people, but it also includes priests and consecrated life. They plan on putting up information points in their cities to tell people about their work in schools, universities and social projects.

"Something very important is going to be a pilgrimage to be performed in 2014 to Schoenstatt in Germany and also to Rome.”

During their time in the Eternal City, the group will have an audience with the Pope that will bring an end to the Conference 2014.

In these hundred years, what makes this movement stand out is the small chapels built in their sanctuaries. Worldwide there are about two hundred of these, all of which are replicas of the original in the valley of Schoenstatt, Germany. They're open to visitors and carry a special meaning.

"The origin of Schoenstatt is small and simple. Just like the source of renewal in the life of the Church is simple. God always chooses the small and the sanctuary reminds us of this reality.”

With all these activities, members of Schoenstatt are also closely following the process of beatifucation for their founder Joseph Kentenich.
