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”.

Patriarch Bartholomew invites Pope to Jerusalem to celebrate historic anniversary

2013-03-20

On Wednesday, Pope Francis met with another Christian leader, the Patriarch of Constantinople, Bartholomew I. 


¨You must be very tired¨ 
Not really. At least not yet. 

The main leader of the Orthodox Church said he hopes they can meet in Jerusalem this year, to mark the 50th anniversary of the famous hug between their predecessors, Pope Paul VI and Patriarch Athenagoras. 

About one thousand years ago, the Orthodox Patriarch and the Pope didn´t speak to each other. They had excommunicated one another respectively. But eventually the reconciliation process began and it still continues to this day. 

The leader of the Orthodox Church gave the Pope a small icon and Pope Francis gave him a cross. 

¨It's small ...It´s beautiful because it´s a cross and becauseit´s a gift from you."  

The Pope also met with a representative of Patriarch Kirill, the head of the Russian Orthodox Church. 

Then Metropolitan Hilarion gave him an icon of Our Lady of Humility.  

"Pray for me, so that I may have humility." 

With these visits, Pope Francis begins his dialogue with other Christian denominations.
