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”.

"I also would like to stress the message. In many parts of message, we find a humble, a very humble Church. But it also admits it shares the wounds of society. This is not pessimism. It's encouraging to have a Church that speaks the language of the people.”

The Archbishop of Manila also talked about the positive and optimistic attitudes reflected in the Synod. He said it's not because they're in denial or because they don't recognize the challenges of the Church. Instead it's because they have hope and faith that the New Evangelization can be carried out.

On Sunday, Benedict XVI will officially close the Synod on the New Evangelization with a Mass in St. Peter's Square. He will then begin to write a document that summarizes all the main points and conclusions of the Synod.
