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”.

Franciscans in the Holy Land ask for urgent help for Syrian families

2013-04-22

One year since the civil war started, Syrian families lack food or work because all industries have been destroyed.This past week, renewed fighting southwest of Damascus killed more than 550 people, mostly women and children. 


The Custodians of the Holy Land are active in many Syrian cities like Damascus, Aleppo, Latakia and Orontes. 

Inside the Franciscan convents, medical dispensaries have turned into shelters for anyone, without religious or ethnic affiliations. They've received Alawite and Sunni Muslims, Christians, as well as injured government and rebel troops. 

For this reason, the Custodians of the Holy Land ask for direct assistance to help keep up their charity works inside Franciscan convents in Syria.
