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”.

"When evangelization first started, it was addressed to everyone, not just believers.  We are convinced that the Christian message also has a value in culture and society, not just in the world of faith.”

In November, the meeting will take place in Portugal, where the main topic will be value and dignity of human life. Then the first week of May 2013, the meeting will head out across the Atlantic, all the way to Mexico. The goal is to gradually encourage each country to foster a relationship and dialogue between believers and non believers.

"Eventually we would like the Church to slowly go beyond the perimeters of parishes, so people can take the message out on the streets. It's a way to engage with those who maybe would never go to church, but still they ask the same questions as believers.”

The meetings are not based on lectures, but rather on dialogue. The next gathering in Assisi, will include Cardinal Ginafranco Ravasi and Italy's president Giorgio Napolitano.
