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”.

Pope's Angelus: How faith is linked to charity

2012-11-12

BENEDICT XVI
"In today’s Gospel, the poor widow gives everything she possesses to the Temple. May her unconditional offering inspire us to rely on God alone, while attributing to everything else its due place and proper worth.”

The Pope said that Sunday's Gospel explains how faith is linked to charity. Even though God expects a lot from the widows, he also protects those who have faith.

BENEDICT XVI
"Everyone, even the poor, can donate something.  Both widows show their faith through a gesture of charity: one to the prophet, the other by offering alms. In doing so, they become a witness of the inseparable connection between faith and charity, between love for God and love for one's neighbor.”

Towards the end, the Pope emphasized that having faith in God leads to charity, regardless of one's wealth.
