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”.

WYD Rio: A comic reviews the history of World Youth Days

2013-06-02

This is the beginning of 'WYD is in Rio', a comic book reviewing the history of international youth meetings with the Popes. It travels back in time to 1984, when John Paul II summoned youths in St. Peter's Square and delivered a special 'Youth Cross' to them. Since then, every two or three years, cities in various continents have hosted WYD.

The young narrator explains that this great event is so much more than just a chance of meeting the Pope. Through the cartoons, he explains how Christianity began, when Jesus met the Apostles and asked them to follow Him.

The publication is available in 6 languages, including Spanish, English and Portuguese. It is the second time World Youth Day inspires a comic book. The previous edition for Madrid 2011 was included in the 'pilgrim kit', and told the story of Benedict XVI's election.
