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”.

From Rome to Australia: Relic of St. Francis Xavier taken to Sydney

PETER COMENSOLI 
Bishop of Sydney (Australia)

"My hope is simply that those who come to encounter the relic of St. Francis Xavier will through his intercession, encounter Christ in their lives.”

This Mass marked the temporary departure of the relic. St. Francis Xavier is known as one of the greatest missionaries of the 16th century, who ventured far East.  Along with St. Therese of Lisieux, he is the co-patron saint of Australia.

PETER COMENSOLI 
Bishop of Sydney (Australia)

"In a sense he's a saint for our part of the world, not a part of Europe of North America, but for our Southern and Eastern part of the world, so it's important for that reason that he's coming.”

"I think it will have great fascination for people in Australia who have a good understanding of St. Francis Xavier and the work that he did.”

The Jesuits agreed to lend it to Australia as part of the"Year of Grace,” which was launched in that country. So, for about two to three days, the relic will be taken to each Australian diocese, so parishioners can learn more about the life St. Francis Xavier.

PETER COMENSOLI 
Bishop of Sydney (Australia)

"It will be all worth while even if just one person is touched in their own lives to come closer to Christ, it will be worth the effort.”

The relic will be taken all across the country. On December 3rd, it will make its way back to Sydney where the feast day of St. Francis Xavier, will be celebrated. On the 4th of December, the relic will return to Rome.
