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”.

2013-04-17

The Pope talked about the Ascension of Jesus into Heaven. As usual, the Pope improvised quite a bit. The Pope said there is no need to fear Jesus, because He is like our personal lawyer.

POPE FRANCIS
"We have someone who always defends us from the traps of the devil, from ourselves and our sins. Dear brothers and sisters, He is our advocate. We should not be afraid to ask for forgiveness or to ask for blessings, to ask for mercy. He will always forgive us. As our lawyer, He will always defend us. We must not forget this.”

Thousands of young people were also in the Square. The Pope gave them a special greeting, calling them to live out their faith with enthusiasm.

POPE FRANCIS
"To the many youths and students who are here today, be ready to follow Jesus with enthusiasm. Part of being young is being enthusiastic. So, follow our Lord with enthusiasm. Allow Him to look after you.”

Towards the end of the general audience, the Pope talked about a group of Italian pilgrims who didn't make it to the audience, because of a delayed flight.

POPE FRANCIS

"A visit from the Archbishop of Sassari, from Sardinia was expected today. As well as that of employees from the 'Eon' society. But their plane was delayed three hours, so they couldn't make it. But still, we have them in our hearts.”

The Pope also prayed for the victims of the 7.8 earthquake that struck Pakistan and Iran, which killed at least 40 people and injured dozens more.
