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 think we can carry out the Year of Faith, just as the Pope recommends, but for that to happen we must pray and also offer sacrifices. But it should be a combination that leads us to be apostles, with joy, as we try to help other people and also learn from them.”

One of the goals of the New Evangelization is to call Catholics to make a commitment to spread the message of the Gospel, with words and actions.

One of the pioneers of the New Evangelization, was St. Josemaría Escriva's first successor,  Bishop Alvaro del Portillo. In fact 25 years ago, his writings show that he was already thinking about the New Evangelization, as a tool to strengthen Christianity in Western countries.

"He was truly motivated by the apostolic zeal of John Paul II. When Monsignor del Portillo contacted St. Josemaría Escrivá, the world already seemed very small, in the sense that he wanted to reach all souls. He wanted to go out and find those souls wherever they were. He knew that with his life he was already collaborating in the New Evangelization.”

The Prelate of the Opus Dei says that living by example and true friendship will be the main points that drive the New Evangelization. He says this will then pave the way for Catholics to transmit the faith in their daily lives, at work, with friends and family.
