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's Mass in Assisi: Respect life. End armed conflicts that stain the Earth with blood


At the end of his homily in Assisi, Pope Francis called for the respect for life and nature. He explained that humans were created to offer care and protection and not to destroy God's creations.   

"The Saint from Assisi is a great witness of showing respect to God's creations...and the way He created them, without experiments or destruction. May we help nature be even more beautiful. To have the closest version of what God created.”

In his remarks, the Pope explicitly called for an end to the conflicts in Syria and the Holy Land. Humans, he said, have a duty to look after all of God's creations and especially each other.

"Humans are called to look after each other. They must be at the center of Creation, which is what God, the Creator, has wished for. Let us respect all human beings. Let us put an end to all the armed conflicts that stain the earth with blood. May all weapons be silenced. May hate give way to love.”

In addition to war and social problems like unemployment in the region, the Pope also mentioned the recent death of hundreds of immigrants off the coast of the Italian island of Lampedusa.
