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 Francis: To live Holy Week we have to learn to 'come out of ourselves'

2013-03-27

POPE FRANCIS
"Dear brothers and sisters. Good morning. I am pleased to welcome you to my first general audience. It is with great appreciation and respect that I take this responsibility from the hands of my beloved predecessor, Pope Benedict XVI.”

The Pope said he would continue to talk about the Year of Faith, just like his predecessor, but given that it's Holy Week, the Pope said he would instead explain the meaning behind Easter, which he described as the core of the liturgical year.

POPE FRANCIS
"Living Holy Week, means following Jesus not only with moved hearts, it means learning to come out of ourselves, like I said last Sunday,  to meet others, to go toward the edges of our existence and help our brothers and sisters, especially those who are the farthest from us, those who are forgotten, those who need the presence of Jesus and His mercy.”

The Pope improvised on several occasions and spoke only in Italian. Among the audience where about 3,000 university students attending the UNIV congress in Rome. During his  catechesis the Pope explained why Jesus was poor.

POPE FRANCIS
"Jesus doesn't have a home, because his true home rests in people. His mission is to open all doors to God, to represent God's love.”

Before ending his general audience, the Pope made a call for peace in the Central African Republic, where riots and violent attacks have taken over the region in the last few days.
