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”.

Benedict XVI bids farewell to Italian President Giorgio Napolitano

2013-02-23

-"Mr. President.” 

-"Your Holiness” 
-"I am very excited about this opportunity.” 

President Napolitano gave the Pope a copy of 1840 edition of the classic Italian book "The Betrothed,” meanwhile the Pope gave him a sketch. 

The pontificate of Benedict XVI and Napolitano's presidency began almost simultaneously, and over time led a deepening of their friendship. This will be the Pope's last official meeting with a head of state. 

-"Take care” 
-"You take care as well. I pray for Italy.” 

On February 5, the Italian Embassy to the Holy See put together a concert for Benedict XVI to mark the 84 anniversary of the Lateran Accords, which gave the Vatican sovereignty. For Napolitano it was also a special occasion, since he was finishing his seventh and last year as the Italian executive. 

Back then, Napolitano believed that would be his last chance to meet with the Pope and it showed during an emotion-filled speech. That farewell concert took place just six days before Benedict XVI announced his resignation.
