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 opens up a big possibility of having collegiate work carried out. I think an episcopal collegiality in Rome will trickle down to the Universal Church. It will be something that will embody the pastoral and doctrinal mission of the Second Vatican Council.”

Javier Soteras defined the Pope as a simple person who doesn't like to waste money. He also says he's a good manager.

P. JAVIER SOTERAS
Director of Radio Maria Argentina
"I have gotten to see another side of him.  I've seen a priest who sets limits, who knows how to manage, someone who has the gift of governance. He's not a person who goes overboard, but he knows how to make decisions firmly and he understands what the leadership of the Church has to do.”

In just a short amount of time, he's been recognized as a smiling Pope who likes to makes jokes, but he's also a man of great devotion who follows a strict schedule when it comes to praying. Building bonds is also very important to him.  

P. JAVIER SOTERAS
Director of Radio Maria Argentina
"He makes time for everyone. Whether it's the cook, or a Swiss Guard at the door, the man who sweeps St. Peter's Square. Or he will even thank the security guard for all his work. He will have a strong relationship with these group of people, just like the one he had in Buenos Aires.”
 
During Father's Soteras' visit here in Rome, he met with Pope Francis, in a casual get together with other Argentinians. They had the famous 'mate' drink, listened to Tango music and had a few laughs...during it all, he says the Pope seemed very calm.
