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.

"The main challenges don't respond to qualities or human talents, but rather logistics: frequencies, the equipment, installations. Those are the material challenges that many times limit that opportunity that the message reaches everyone.” 

The new stations would be managed by local people. And to make that happen, all Radio Maria stations will have a special events lineup up from May 10-11.

"On Friday, May 10, we are inviting all viewers to tune in to Radio Maria in any of the countries where we broadcast, because at 3 in the afternoon, local time in Italy, we will broadcast from Malawi a multilingual Holy Mass. That's on Friday. Then on Saturday, May 11 at the same time, we will have a intercontinental rosary, coordinated from Panama.” 

Starting from scratch is not easy. A frequency, studios and the equipment are needed. That's a challenge in itself, it becomes even more complicated in conflict areas or developing countries. Radio Maria is asking their listeners to do their part to help them spread the Christian message around the world.
