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”.

"This prayer will push us to go beyond the religious and human peripheries, where there are so many spaces to fill and accompany. It will help us live closer to the heart of the Pope, who has come from the ends of the world, the immense world of the Pampa. We find ourselves united to the great love of the Salus Populi Romani, identified with his beloved Mother of Lujan.”

Pope Francis and Cardinal Santos Abril has been friends for years, when Abril was a nuncio to Argentina, and Cardinal Bergoglio the archbishop of Buenos Aires.

POPE FRANCIS
"I thank you my brother and friend. A friendship that began in that country at the ends of the world.”

The Pope prayed the rosary before this icon of the Virgin Mary, which is known as the Salus Populi Romani, which means the Salvation of the Roman People, and is one of the oldest in the city.

Speaking before the patroness of Rome, the Pope talked about the importance of mothers in their child's education.

POPE FRANCIS
"A mother helps her children look at life's problems realistically, and not dwell on them, but to face them with courage, and not to be weak and to know how to overcome them.”

Before returning to the Vatican, the Pope greeted several of the pilgrims gathered at the Roman basilica, and asked them to pray for him three Hail Mary's.
