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”.

Shakespeare: Mankind as a work of art

2012-08-28

His characters may be complicated, but they've always shown a human dimension.  This very topic was discussed by Literature Professor, Alison Milbank and  Edoardo Rialti who works as the University of Assisi. During the Rimini  Meeting they read a specific portion of Hamlet, precisely to prove this point.

In that piece, the prince of Denmark recounts how before the eyes of man, mankind is a masterpiece, while in the eyes of God, they are merely dust. But what changes the playing field, says professor Rialti, is the fact that humans have an infinite connection with nature and the infinite.

That's what happens when we accept that  we are creatures that can truly have a relationship with the infinite. Shakespeare explains this in a unique way through his writings: In his comedies and  tragedies, people often make mistakes, but there is also the possibility of being forgiven and ultimately to lead a happy life. It's another way Shakespeare reminds us that mankind is truly a work of art.
