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's Pentecost Mass: The Holy Spirit drives our mission, promotes unity in the Church

2013-05-20

POPE FRANCIS
“This is not a question of novelty for novelty’s sake, the search for something new to relieve our boredom, as is so often the case in our own day. The newness which God brings into our life is something that actually brings fulfillment, that gives true joy, true serenity, because God loves us and desires only our good.”

The second point is harmony. The Pope said that despite all the different movements, charisms and missions, all these groups fall under the umbrella of the Universal Church.

POPE FRANCIS
“The Holy Spirit would appear to create disorder in the Church, since He brings the diversity of charisms and gifts; yet all this, by His working, is a great source of wealth, for the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of unity, which does not mean uniformity, but which leads everything back to harmony. In the Church, it is the Holy Spirit who creates harmony.”

As his third point, the Pope explained that the Holy Spirit drives the mission of the Church, by opening all doors, so that everyone can go out and spread the Gospel.
 
POPE FRANCIS
“The Holy Spirit is the soul of mission. The events that took place in Jerusalem almost 2,000 years ago are not something far removed from us; they are events which affect us and become a lived experience in each of us.”

Towards the end, the Pope thanked all the movements for their work. He also encouraged them to go out of their comfort zones to preach the Gospel.
