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 to Youth: Forget about false idols. Only God offers true hope

2013-07-24

After a warm  welcome, Pope Francis celebrated his first World Youth Day Mass in the  Basilica of Our Lady of Aparecida.  The Pope remembered  that upon his election, he entrusted his pontificate to Our  Lady. At the very start of the Mass, he once again asked Our Lady for the  success of WYD and the protection of Latin America. 

POPE FRANCIS

"When the Church looks for Jesus, it always knocks at His Mother’s door and asks: Show us Jesus. It is from Mary that the Church learns true discipleship. That is why the Church always goes out on its mission in the footsteps of Mary.”

During his homily, the Pope also addressed parents and educators, encouraging them to welcome the responsibility of passing on the faith. When addressing the youth, the Pope said, false worldly idols need to be replaced by the one true God.


POPE FRANCIS

"It is true that nowadays, to some extent, everyone, including our young people, feels attracted by the many idols which take the place of God and appear to offer hope: money, success, power, pleasure. Often a growing sense of loneliness and emptiness in the hearts of many people leads them to seek satisfaction in these ephemeral idols. Dear brothers and sisters, let us be lights of hope! Let us maintain a positive outlook on reality.”

When it comes to leading a positive way of life, the Pope said one should embrace three simple attitudes: hopefulness, openness to God and joy.

POPE FRANCIS

"Christians cannot be pessimists! They cannot look like someone in constant mourning. If we are truly in love with Christ and if we sense how much he loves us, our heart will 'light up' with a joy that spreads to everyone around us. As Benedict XVI said: 'the disciple knows that without Christ, there is no light, no hope, no love, no future.”

Towards the end of the Mass, the Pope told the crowds, that they should never forget that the values of spirituality, generosity, perseverance, fraternity and joy are rooted in the Christian faith.
