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”.

2013-11-04

Every November the Pope celebrates a special Mass in Saint Peter's Basilica in memory of the cardinals and bishops that passed away during the year. Nine cardinals died in 2013, five of them after the election of Pope Francis.

During his homily, the Pope talked about God's mercy. He explained that Jesus takes both good and evil in his hands.

POPE FRANCIS
"It is not by chance that Jesus wanted to preserve the wounds on his hands to make us feel his mercy. This is our strength and our hope!"

Pope Francis added that the deceased cardinals and bishops have already met God, and that Catholics should always be ready for that encounter.

POPE FRANCIS
"And let us also pray for ourselves, that the Lord may prepare us for this encounter. We do not know the date, but that encounter will take place."

The Pope also prayed for the 136 bishops and archbishops that passed away, in different parts of the world in the last 12 months.
