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”.

Álvaro del Portillo: The miracle that will pave the way towards his beatification

2013-07-11

The events took place back in 2003. Just two days after José Ignacio was born, he underwent surgery for a serious malformation in both his abdomen and his heart. But  suddenly his health worsened.

"We were at my in-laws house. At about 2pm they called us from the clinic and told us to go there immediately because José Ignatio wasnt well.”

The young boys heart stopped beating and he went into cardiac arrest. The doctors tried to resuscitate him. But no matter how hard they tried, the boy was declared dead shortly after.

JOSÉ IGNACIO RODRÍGUEZ
Pediatrician
"We kept on resuscitating him, we kept on and on. After 30 minutes we simply saw nothing was happening, so we started reducing our efforts.”


But the childs mother, never lost hope. In her desperation, she turned to Alvaro del Portillo in prayer.

FRANCISCO JAVIER URETA
Father
"I saw her praying in an incredible way. She was praying with extreme fervor and faith.”

Thats when she says, something really incredible happened. Young José Ignacios pulse rhythm began to grew faster and steadier, until the boys heart regained its normal function. Thats something the doctors still cant explain.

JOSÉ IGNACIO RODRÍGUEZ
Pediatrician
"Without an any... without any explanation José Ignatios heart regained its rhythm, progressively and with a quick pace. And now he is here with us.”

And even though José Ignacio suffered several complications after his surgery, today he is alive and well. He loves soccer, tennis and is a big fan of dancing. His parents say they have no doubt, it all happened through the intercession of Alvaro del Portillo.
