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”.

Vatican calls for greater protection of fishermen

2013-11-21

To mark the World Fisheries Day 2013, the Vatican issued a message calling for greater social protection for fishermen and their families.
The message, issued by the Pontifical Council for the Pastoral Care of Migrants and Itinerant People, talks about the preservation of fish stocks for future generations.


But it also warned about excessive commercialization, which hurts local fishermen. The message added that a globalized market can also lead to exploitation of workers from low income countries.

As a solution, the Vatican called on world governments to ratify the Work in Fishing Convention 2007. The measure would provide proper salaries and safe working conditions for those who earn a living from the seas.
