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 Francis: Children must not be enslaved!

2013-06-12

POPE FRANCIS
"All children must be able to play, study, pray and grow, in their families, this in a harmonic context, in love and serenity . But instead of letting them play, these people enslave them,  and this is a plague. It is their right and our duty. A serene childhood allows children to look with confidence towards life and tomorrow. Woe to those who stifle them in their joyful enthusiasm of hope!”

Pope Francis also continued his catechesis on the Creed. He explained why the Second Vatican Council presented the Church as 'the people of God', meaning it must be driven by authentic  love.     

POPE FRANCIS
"We see so many wars on the newspapers, on TV... so many wars among Christians! How can that be possible?Within God's people! In neighborhoods, at work. So many wars because of envy, jealousy. Even within our families, so many wars! But we must ask the Lord to make us understand the law of love. It is so nice to love each other as real brothers. It is so nice!”

The Pope also made everyone smile when he used a very unusual metaphor to explain how humankind can contribute in the fight against evil.

POPE FRANCIS
"In a stadium, let's see, Rome's Olimpico Stadium, or the San Lorenzo Stadium in Buenos Aires, in a dark night, if someone puts on a small light, one can barely see it. But if over 70 thousand spectators each light up their own light, the whole stadium lights up. Let us make our life a light in Christ. Together we will bring the Gospel's light to mankind.”

The audience was attended by thousands of pilgrims, which flocked to the square in the clear but windy weather.
