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”.

And how was sleeping on the floor? It was worth it.

As gifts, the Latin American chief executive gave Pope Francis a wooden sculpture of Our Lady of Caacupé, the patroness of Paraguay. He also gave the Pope a book of old Jesuit missions in the country. Pope Francis was happy to receive it.

The third gift was a book with letters from Paraguayan saint San Roque Gonzalez. The Pope in return gave him a papal medallion, as well as a copy of the Aparecida Document.

As he was greeting family members and giving them rosaries. The daughters also gave the Pope a mate, or the tea gourd.
