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”.

2013-01-15

Upon his election as Pope, and in a large display of confidence in his fellow countryman, Ratzinger tasked Archbishop Gerhard Muller, with overseeing his body of work. Recently, Msgr. Muller presented Expanding the Horizon of Reason, his book which features speeches and texts highlighting the main themes of Ratzinger's theological work.

Prefect, Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith 
"He has the possibility to explain in simple words understandable for all but very profound contents and very deep insights.” 

As the title explains, Muller presents as one of Ratzinger's biggest legacies his attempts to marry faith and reason, as complimentary to each other. 

He states that faith without reason can lead to fanaticism, while reason without faith fails to provide a context from which we can answer life's existential questions. 

MSGR. GERHARD MULLER 
Prefect, Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith 
"The faith is not only linked with the past. We are a big history in our Catholic faith. FLASH But young man cannot only live from the past, they must have the perspective to the future.” 

In addition to the now-Pope's words on faith and reason, the book features four other chapters with texts from Ratzinger's other works. 

Among them, he highlights the Pope's stance on the importance of new media in the era of globalization, and how the Internet can be useful for the New Evangelization.
