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”.

Pope greets Cardinals in a relaxed and at ease meeting

2013-03-15

He thanked the Cardinals for the all the conversations they had leading up to the Conclave and especially the day when he was elected Pope in the Sistine Chapel. He said the Holy Spirit has a role that can't be denied. 


POPE FRANCIS 
"It's interesting and it makes me think that it's the Holy Spirit that makes a difference in the Church. The Paraclete seems to be an apostle of Babel, yet it unites all these differences, not by equating them, but by harmonizing them.” 

Once again, the new Pope thanked Benedict XVI for his pontificate and his teachings. Addressing the Cardinals as 'brothers,' he told them that Cardinal Mejía had suffered a stroke

POPE FRANCIS
"Dear Brothers, let's show courage. Half of us are in our golden years. But old age is the source of wisdom. Elders carry the wisdom that comes with life. It reminds me of Simon and Anna in the Temple, who because of their age were able to recognize Jesus clearly. Let's pass on this wisdom to the young. Just like good wine, improves with time, so does wisdom. Let's pass this on to other generations.” 

The Pope personally greeted the Cardinals, once again showing what seemed to be a warm personality with the College of Cardinals. He smiled quite often and made others laugh as well. 

He seemed so at ease, that he immediately wore a bracelet that says 'I believe in God' that was given to him as a gift by South African Cardinal Napier. The Pope also kissed the hand of Vietnamese Cardinal Pham Minh Man.
