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 to the youths: 'The Church needs your enthusiasm!”

2013-07-28

 Rios Copacabana beach  turned into a pilgrimage site, filled with music, color and joy. More  than3 million people attended the final act of WYD as Pope  Francis celebrated the closing Mass. During his homily, the  Pope urged all pilgrims to go, and evangelize the whole world. 

POPE FRANCIS
"The experience of this encounter must not remain locked up in your life or in the small group of your parish, your movement, or your community. That would be like withholding oxygen from a flame that's burning.”

The Pope's Mass was also attended by Latin American political leaders.  Among them, the President of Brazil, Dilma Roussef, but also Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, President of Argentina and Evo Morales, President of Bolivia.

The Pope had a very specific message for Latin American youths, asking them to be protagonists in the world's evangelization.

POPE FRANCIS
"This continent has received the proclamation of the Gospel which has marked its history and borne much fruit. Now this proclamation is entrusted also to you, that it may resound with fresh power. The Church needs you, your enthusiasm, your creativity and the joy that is so characteristic of you.”

The Pope then summed up his homily into three key ideas: "go, don't be afraid, and serve.” Their mission, the Pope told the youths, must be carried out in a community, since Jesus, the Pope said, did not want his disciples to live isolated. The Pope  also thanked the priests for their work, as they help the faithful to "actively engage in the Church.”
