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”.

Pontifical Council for Culture: Reaching out to the Youth

2013-02-08

CARD. PETER ERDÖ 

Archbishop of Budapest (Hungary) 
"Sometimes consumerism is presented as the culture of the youth. A consumerism where through social pressures, those who want to define their identity try to do so through symbols and name brands that eventually everyone has.” 

Cardinal Peter Erdo said that despite these real social pressures, young people, through formation and inner strength, can often overcome some of these challenges. 

CARD. PETER ERDÖ 
Archbishop of Budapest (Hungary) 
"Even when personal and even psychological liberty are suppressed and left with little room to grow, there is always a glimmer of hope, embedded in the soul of everyone.” 

The meetings also touched on social problems, where young people grow up with high insecurities, violence or even drug use

CARD. JUAN SANDOVAL ÍÑIGUEZ 
Archbishop Emeritus of Guadalajara (Mexico) 
"A 15 year old teenager tells me: 'if I have to live an entire life of hunger and with no one around... well maybe it's better to take an illegal route and have money for two or three years. Even if I get killed, I will have lived those years with money and power.' So with this mentality they join a gang.” 

As far as solutions, Cardinal Sandoval says the Church should have a higher presence online and in social networks. It should also promote youth training and have activities to fight laziness. 

The Vatican says it's committed to the future. Proof of that is the fact that this is the first plenary session where young adults are invited to speak. Understanding the youth is a way to bring God to younger generations.
