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 welcomes document published by the International Theological Commission

2012-12-07

The document, which is divided into three chapters, deals with issues addressed in contemporary theology. 


BENEDICT XVI 
"This document presents, 'the genetic code of Catholic theology', so to speak, meaning it includes the principles that define its identity. Therefore, it guarantees its unity in the diversity of its achievements.” 

Benedict XVI also called on theologians to be open to that same faith the Holy Spirit inspires in believers. 

BENEDICT XVI
"Among the criteria of Catholic theology, the document mentions the attention theologians should pay to the 'sensus fidelium,' meaning the sense of the faithful.” 

During his speech, the Pope also addressed the danger of relativism, where a universal truth is ignored or denied. Under this mentality, monotheistic religions are often accused of triggering violence. 

But the Pope added that's not the goal of Christianity, since Jesus himself rejected all violence. On the contrary, the social doctrine of the Church, said the Pope, offers solutions to modern day problems.
