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 calls for unity, asks all Catholics to pray for the Church in China

2013-05-22

POPE FRANCIS 
"What do I do with my life? Do I bring unity? Or do I divide with gossip and envy? Let ask ourselves this.”

The Pope also highlighted that on May 24th, the Church invites all faithful to pray for Catholics in China, where religious liberty isn't  always respected. 

POPE FRANCIS 
"I urge all Catholics around the world to join in prayer with our brothers and sisters in China, to ask God for the grace to proclaim their faith with humility and joy. To proclaim Christ who died and rose again; to be faithful to His Church and the Successor of Peter and to live everyday life in service to their country and their fellow citizens in a way that is consistent with the faith they profess.”

In China for example, there are 12 million Catholics, yet they are only allowed to practice their faith under the control of the government. Meaning, only with bishops and priests approved by the Chinese Patriotic Association and only in registered parishes. That's why many Catholics, follow the so called "underground" Church which follows Rome. 

The Pope also prayed for all the victims affected by the deadly tornado in Oklahoma, particularly for parents who lost their children. 

POPE FRANCIS 
"I invite all of you to pray with me for the victims, especially the children, of the disaster in Oklahoma.  May the Lord himself console everyone, in particular parents who have lost a child in such a tragic way,”

The Pope also reminded Catholics that they have the responsibility to spread the Gospel. This, he said, is made possible through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit.
