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”.

Pope to politicians: Economic crisis can also trigger a renewal of ethics

2012-09-24

BENEDICT XVI
"The current crisis obliges us to re-plan our journey, to set ourselves new rules and to discover new forms of commitment ... it thus becomes an opportunity for discernment, in which to shape a new vision for the future.”

These politicians make up the Executive Committee of the Christian Democratic International Organization. During their weekend meeting, the Pope called on them to not only focus on the urgency of economic problems. Instead, the Pope urged them to also protect fundamental values of society, like the defense of life, family and the common good.

BENEDICT XVI
"Your political and institutional commitment must not, then, be limited to responding to the requirements of market logic. Rather, its central and indispensable goal must remain the search for the common good, correctly understood, and the promotion and protection of the inalienable dignity of the human person.”

The Pope then told them that more responsibility is expected from those who govern. This responsibility, said Benedict XVI, shouldn't be seen as a threat, but rather as a motivation to be more responsible and courageous.
