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”.

2013-08-14

August tends to be one of the quietest months in Rome, and many years had gone by since a Pope spent the month in the city. As a result,pilgrimages and visitors continue coming here, at a time when the streets of Rome are usually deserted and everyone is away on vacation. But this month brings another unusual sight.   


The soccer world will honor Pope Francis with a friendly match between two soccer superpowers. Two team that with their history and impressive rosters, seek to become the best in the world: Italy and Argentina. 

POPE FRANCIS 
"I thank you for this visit, on the occasion of the 'friendly' match between Italy and Argentina’s national soccer teams. Really, it would be a little difficult for me to be a fan, but fortunately it’s a 'friendly.'” 

The match will take place at Rome's Olympic Stadium, an emblematic site that has hosted some of the most important athletic events. The stadium will without a doubt play host to an intense game, which, even though a friendly, both teams said they will give it their all to get the win. 

"I'm visiting Rome and I found about the the Argentina-Italy game. I like it, and well, I'm Argentinian, so I hope Argentina wins.” 

In addition to the match the world keeps a watchful eye on Rome, to see what changes Pope Francis will make to the Vatican Curia. But even just by staying in Rome for the summer, the Pope has already changed the pace of life in the city that will host to an international game between two top teams.
