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: Be the salt of the earth, don't be 'museum-piece' Christians

2013-05-23

POPE FRANCIS
"Christian originality is not uniform! It takes each one as is, with one's own personality, characteristics and culture. One protects that because it is a treasure. However, it gives one something more: it gives flavor! This Christian originality we have is so beautiful, because when you go after uniformity – and everyone is 'salted' in the same way, things will be like when a woman cooks with too much salt. One can only taste the salt and not the meal. Christian originality is this: each person as is, with one's God given gifts.”

The Pope also said that this 'salt of the earth' must be shared with others. When one keeps it stored, he explained, it becomes stale and humid.
