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).

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”.

2013-10-08

Hindus call it Dayasagar, which means Sea of Mercy. The rest of the world knows it as India's tallest statue of Jesus. It's located in the city of Sagar, in central India.   


To idea to build the monument came from Bishop Anthony Chirayath, as a way to pay homage to the Divine Mercy. 

Actually building the structure took about three years. It's over 42 feet high and its base is made out of cement, precisely to endure any earthquakes or cyclones that may hit the region. 

The statue was blessed by Cardinal George Alencherry, from the Syro-Malabar Church. Twenty other bishops and thousands of pilgrims were also present during the historic blessing. 

So far, the statue has not only appealed to Catholics, but also non-Catholics who visit the sanctuary to meditate, pray and ask for spiritual guidancefor them and their families.
