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).

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”.

Benedict XVI: “Medicine is not a profession, but a mission”


Pontifical Council for Health Care Workers
"We have achieved many goals. First off, we were able to reflect on our duties, on our mission as pastoral agents in the difficult world of pain and sickness. We bring people a bit of hope and calm during times as challenging as the prelude to death."

Benedict XVI closed off the conference, welcoming the participants at the Paul VI Hall.

"Anyone who chooses to work within the world of suffering, treating their work as a human and spiritual mission, requires higher competence, that goes beyond beyond academic titles. It is the Christian science of suffering."

The Pope asked them not to forget the value of dignity whenever they are with their patients. And so, he asked them to provide auxiliary care.

"Only by clearly focusing medical and healthcare activities on the well-being of man at his most fragile and defenseless, of man who searches for meaning in the unfathomable mystery of pain, can we conceive of hospitals as a place in which care is a mission and not merely an occupation."

Benedict XVI emphasized that now, more than ever, good Samaritans are needed because, according to him, "the measure of humanity is determined by its relationship to suffering."
