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”.

"We are vacationing here in Europe. We started in the Nordic countries, then we came to Italy. In Rome, our plan included visiting key churches and especially the Vatican. But it turns out our vacation schedule coincided with Wednesday's general audience, so we decided to come to see the Pope and have him bless our marriage. That's why we're dressed like this.”

That wish came true. The Colombian couple had the opportunity to sit quite close to the Pope, as he blessed them along with other newlywed couples.

 "Coming here was a challenge, but for me, it's part of a very special grace. We are already married in the Church, but seeking more blessings can lead us towards  a path of holiness. It can expand our understanding of God, of living our faith in marriage and of having children and raising them Catholic.”

So, surrounded by thousands of people, this Colombian couple received the Pope's blessing, which they hope will remind them of staying true to their commitments, through the good times and the bad. Actually signing up for this blessing was easy. Couples need to fill out an application found on the Vatican's website under the Prefecture of the Papal Household. Then after it's submitted, the only thing left to do is wait for a reply.
