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 celebrates Mass with Swiss Guards: Courage is needed to truly live the faith

2013-05-03

POPE FRANCIS 

“When the Church loses courage, the Church enters into a ‘lukewarm’ atmosphere. The lukewarm, lukewarm Christians, without courage. That hurts the Church so much, because this tepid atmosphere draws you inside, and problems arise among us; we no longer have the horizon, or courage to pray towards heaven, or the courage to proclaim the Gospel.” 

The Pope talked about the importance of prayer, adding that the Resurrection of Jesus is not something spiritual or symbolic, but something real. To believe, said the Pope, one needs courage. 

POPE FRANCIS 
“We are lukewarm. We have the courage to get involved in our small worries, in our jealousies, our envy, our careerism, in selfishly going forward. In all these things, but this is not good for the Church: the Church must be courageous! We all have to be courageous in prayer, in challenging Jesus!” 

As the Swiss Guards looked on, the Pope said that transmitting the faith starts at an early age. He then shared a personal story, adding that his grandmother played a key role in strengthening his faith when he was a young boy.
