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”.

"The Pope asked me, 'what's your name, what do you do?' FLASH 1:04 "And then I asked him if he could give a special blessing for my daughter, for my wife and he did. And then he thought about my dog saying, 'and one for the dog,' He reached down and patted my dog.” 

Argentine journalists also took advantage. Father Javier, who worked with the Pope back home, gave him a hug. 

FR. JAVIER SOTERAS 
Director, Radio Maria (Argentina) 
"I showed him a picture of the sick baby of one of the journalists here. He asked me, 'what's her name?' I answered that I didn't know. 'I will pray for her,' he said. He took the photo and I'm sure he will pray a lot of that person.” 

Other journalists also thanked the Pope for his advice to seek beauty, truth and kindness

IACOPO SCARAMUZZI 
Journalists, TMNews (Italy) 
"I took advantage by telling him that as a journalist I was very happy to cover this historic event and that I appreciated his advice to cover beauty, kindness and truth. He told me, 'I suggest that all three together because beauty alone is not enough, kindness alone is not enough, and truth alone is not enough.'” 

Polish journalist Ryszard Kapuscinski wrote that to be a journalist, above all, one has to be a good human being. Today the Pope distinguished between believers and non-believers, but thanked and blessed them the same for their efforts.
