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.

Prefect, Congregation for Bishops (March 18, 2010)
"I think that for all families, passing on the faith to their own children is a great challenge today, due to secularism and all the provocations within a culture that's veering from Christianity. We need to educate our children about faith, respecting their freedom, but presenting the faith in a decisive way.”

Cardinal Marc Ouellet is fluent in six languages: his native French, English, Spanish, German, Italian and Portuguese.
