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 names a Special Envoy for Medjugorje

< style> February 11, 2017. Pope Francis has asked Henryk Hoser, S.A.C., bishop of Warsaw-Prague (Poland), to go to Medjugorje as Special Envoy of the Holy See. According< g> the Vatican, "the mission has the aim of acquiring a deeper knowledge of the pastoral situation there and above all, of the needs of the faithful who go there in pilgrimage, and on the basis of this, to suggest possible pastoral initiatives for the future”.

October 25, 2013 (Romereports.com) Pope Francis proposedapproaching "with respect and courage the families facing difficultsituations,” as well as "marriages in crisis or those who areseparated.” In the last gathering of the Pontifical Council for theFamily, the Pope urged Christians to use their everyday life to showthe "beauty of marriage and the Christian family.” 

"The family iswhere one learns to love, the natural center of human life. Thefamily is made of faces, of people that love, that talk, thatsacrifice for each other, and protect life, specially the mostfragile, the weakest.” 

The Pope also askedparents to "waste time” with their children, so that they canrealize that love is always free. 

The president of thePontifical Council for the Family, Archbishop Vicenzo Paglia, gavePope Francis this icon where the Holy Family appears along with withtwo old men. "This iconrepresents the relationship between generations.” 

Pope Francis was delightedwith the icon's message. So much so that he reminded attendees that a"society that abandons its children or marginalizes its elderlymembers not only carries out an act of injustice, but also sanctionsthe failure of that society.” 

Married couples are thePope's main advisers when it comes to family issues. That's why themembers of the Pontifical Council for Family are largely marriages, afact that distinguishes it from other Vatican departments.
