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”.

CARD. CHRISTOPH SCHÖNBORN
Archbishop of Vienna (Austria)
February 1, 2008
"Charity is the source of mercy because Deus Caritas est, God is charity. Where does his merciful love come for us? God is mercy. We must have compassion for those in misery, for all of us in the misery of sin and suffering. God shows us his charity in the form of mercy. Hope is deep down the expression of trust as an answer to a merciful God.”
 
Between 1987 and 1992, Cardinal Schönborn worked with Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger in drafting the Catholic Church's catechism. In 1991, John Paul II named him auxiliary bishop of Vienna and four years later, archbishop of the city. In 1996 he led the spiritual exercises for John Paul II, and was created cardinal in 1998.
