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”.

Benedict XVI pleads for help for people with disabilites

2012-12-03

BENEDICT XVI  

"Any person, even with physical or mental limitations, even if severe, have an invaluable worth, and that is how they should be treated. I ask all Church communities to be attentive and receive these brothers and sisters. I urge lawmakers and leaders to mentor people with disabilities and promote their active participation in society.” 

During his brief homily, Benedict XVI also explained the meaning of the Advent, the four weeks that lead to the coming of Jesus. 

BENEDICT XVI 
"The word 'Advent' means 'coming' or 'presence.' In the ancient world, it signified the coming of the king or the emperor into one of the provinces; in the language of Christians, it referred to the coming of God, to His presence in the world; a mystery that involves the whole of the cosmos and of history, but that recognises two culminating moments: the first and the second coming of Jesus Christ. The first is the Incarnation itself; the second is the glorious return at the end of time.” 

The Pope urged sobriety and prayer to prepare for the birth of Jesus Christ. 

BENEDICT XVI 
"In the Gospel of Luke, Jesus says to the disciples: 'Beware that your hearts do not become drowsy from carousing and drunkenness and the anxieties of daily life . . . Be vigilant at all times and pray.' So: simplicity and prayer.” 

Benedict XVI also had kind words for the many circus performers that traveled to Rome over the weekend and set up a circus tent and carousel in St. Peter's Square.
