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 in Sardinia: Helping the poor simply to serve your vanity is a serious sin

2013-09-23

Charity shouldn't be about serving ones own vanity. Pope Francis talked about this during his meeting with charity workers and prisoners in the Italian city of Cagliari. 


POPE FRANCIS 
"Some want to highlight their good works. They constantly talk about the poor, but then they use the needy to benefit their own personal interests. I known it's human to do this, but it's not good. That's not Jesus. I'll go even further and say it's a sin. A serious sin. It's using the needy, who in essence are the flesh of Jesus, to suit one's own vanity. This is a serious sin!” 

Speaking from the city's Cathedral, the Pope then called on all Christians to make an effort to help those in need, despite the challenges that may arise. He also added that no one person is better than another, explaining that we all have weaknesses and faults. He then encouraged people to embrace solidarity

 POPE FRANCIS 
"This word, solidarity, is in danger of beingeliminated from dictionaries because it's uncomfortable. It's bothersome! But why? Because it forces us to see our neighbor and offer love. Solidarity could be eliminated from our dictionary because it's bothersome.”

While addressing the poor and prisoners, the Pope thanked all Church institutions like 'Caritas' that dedicated their time, energy and funds to help the needy. The Pope then asked them to not let anyone take away their hope
