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.

34 years have passed since the election of John Paul I, one of the shortest papacies in history

2012-08-26

At one point he served as the Patriarch of Venice. Then in 1973, Paul VI made him a Cardinal. Once he was elected Pope, he served for only 33 days, before passing away.

John Paul I chose that name as a way to honor his two predecessors: John XXIII and Paul VI. He was actually the first pope with two names.

The theme of his papacy was 'Humility'. It's a virtue he characterized from the time of his coronation ceremony, when he rejected the traditional papal tiara.
