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”.

How to get the Pope's attention during General Audiences

2013-10-28

October 27, 2013 (Romereports.com) Anythinggoes when it comes to catching the attention of Pope Francis duringthe General Audiences. The Pope sets aside about 45 minutesbeforehand, to ride among the crowd on board his Popemobile. Andgetting his attention in a crowd of 80,000 people is no easy task. 


Flagsand signs can be very useful, especially to promote a certain group.These German pilgrims made sure to bring theirs to St. Peter's Squarefor the Audience. 

"Weare from Essen, it's a rural area in Germany. We are a Catholicworker movement, and he is the brother of a bishop in Essen. And heis always here too, and we walked into the audience by Francesco.” 

Butothers leave flags aside and instead they depend on their uniforms.Firefighters, for example, have caught the Pope's attention twice inthe past two weeks. 

TheseItalian pilgrims also turned to their uniforms. They showed up to theaudience dressed in white and green, feathered hat included. 

"Thefinancial guard and organization for retirees is called ANFI: theNational Financial Association of Italy. My hat is an alpine hat,because the finance guards wear an alpine hat.” 

Andeven though they weren't successful this time around, all is well.Each one returns home more inspired to continue their work. 

"Thereare Africans, there are Turks, and there are Croatians in thismovement. And so to say, 'We are all the same people here, we haveone hope, and one God.' And so this is alright.” 

"Ithink that Pope Francis spoke well, so if we didn't greet him, it'sno problem.” 

Tothem the most important part is not that Pope Francis didn't seethem. But rather, the fact that they saw him, even at a distance.
