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”.

"The call to proclaim the Gospel is the duty of every baptized person. It's simply part of the Christian vocation itself, regardless of individual status or vocation in life.”

Morali says the New Evangelization cannot be improvised. It requires specific training and formation-not just only good intentions.

"Our school offers training for religious, laity and priests who want to prepare for the challenges of proclaiming the Gospel and the New Evangelization.”

To get the message out the University is offering new courses. They include Mission ad gentes and New Evangelization. The goal is to address the most important challenges of missiology and the theology of religions. Perhaps even most challenging, is addressing how to talk about God to someone who is a declared atheist.

"If I look inside myself, I think of my salvation, how to live as a Christian, living the values  of Christ. Well, I become a model for the rest. Mother Teresa never forced people to conversion, baptism, she only lived as a Christian.”

The professors also teach about ways to approach those who have never heard about Jesus. To get their point across, the first step is having a profound respect for each person. The Faculty of Missiology turns 80 this year and has 100 students.
