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 says goodbye to Roman priests, says he will be 'hidden from the world'

2013-02-14

BENEDICT XVI
“Even though I will retire in prayer, I am sure you all will always be close to me, although I will remain hidden from the world.”

Afterward, with relative ease, he summed up his memories on the key points of the Second Vatican Council. He highlighted the intense work of the delegates and the value of the documents they drafted. But he warned that it was also the “Council of the media” that many times made wrong interpretations.

BENEDICT XVI

“We know that this “council of the media” was accessible to anyone, so this made it more efficient in creating more calamities and problems and much misery: closed seminaries, closed convents and everything became banalized. As a result, the real Council had problems.”

However, the Pope seemed optimistic and considered that, 50 years later, the “Council of the media” is beginning to disappear and a spiritual and profound Council has taken its place.

The Pope laughed when he explained that his bishop feared that John XXVIII would punish him for presenting a document that was actually prepared by the young theologian Ratzinger.

BENEDICT XVI
“A bit later Pope John invited him, and he was full of fear that he had done something incorrect or false, and he was thinking that he had called him to remove him. When his secretary helped him dress for the audience, he said that perhaps this has the last time he would wear those clothes.”

Near the end, in between applause and tears, there was another moment of laughter when an unexpectedly tall priest greeted a much shorter, and surprised Pope.
