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”.

Archbishop Onaiyekan: Nigerian Cardinal who was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize

2013-02-21

This is what he said just hours after being made a Cardinal.  

CARD. JOHN OLORUNFEMI ONAIYEKAN
Archbishop of Abuja (Nigeria)
"I am not even afraid, even though the challenges are high. You know why I am not afraid? Because I've learned in my many years, serving the Church that God will never send us anywhere if we are not accompanied with His grace. So I am good and happy and confident by God's grace.”

He was born in the city of Kabba in 1994. At the age of 25 he was ordained a priest. He studied Theology in Rome and in 1980 he joined the International Theological Commission as well as the Commission for Dialogue between Catholics and Methodists.

In 1983 John Paul II ordained him a bishop in St. Peter's Basilica. He was only 38 at the time, making him the youngest bishop in Nigeria. His work with inter-religious dialogue continued, when from from 1991 to 2006, he worked with the World Council of Churches.

Given the random and frequent attacks against Christian churches in Nigeria, the Cardinal has always defended dialogue and peace in his country. In the Vatican, he's a member of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith and the Pontifical Council for the Family.
