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”.

"He always greeted everyone, and he would talk to all of us. He's a very simple person. Yesterday he stopped by to pay the bill.”

Manzetti says something else that struck him was the the Pope picked up his own bags. On his free time, he sat along with other guests, and not in the reserved, separate hall rooms.

 "I saw the Pope coming in when he was still a cardinal, before he left for the Conclave. He's a very natural person. He would go up to his room, then come back down to have dinner. He would humbly ask: Is this seat taken?"

For now, Pope Francis still lives at the Vatican's Casa Santa Marta, where he was staying as the conclave began. In the coming days he will officially move to the Papal apartments.
