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”.

Archbishop of Manila (Philippines)

"In the New Evangelization and the Year of Faith, the Church should pay attention also to the act of faith, but not just the content of the faith, but how the heart of the person could come to faith and respond to faith. Even in ordinary human relationships, faith, trusting other people is becoming quite difficult.”

He says the mission of the New Evangelization and the Year of Faith are quite similar. He adds that when people have faith in God, it's easier for them to have faith in others. Overtime, this makes societies healthier and stronger.

"If I cannot trust fellow human beings, if I cannot trust the banks, if I cannot trust political institutions, if I cannot trust a person, then there will be no marriage, there will be no commitment to the development of society. If I cannot trust human beings, how can I believe in a God I don't see.”

On November 24th, Tagle will be elevated to  a Cardinal by Benedict XVI. Under his new role, he says he will continue to emphasize the connection between having a strong faith and improving human relationships.
