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”.

"I do feel that Catholics should expect lots of changes, in the sense of direction. But I don't think we could say that after the meeting there will be dramatic changes. No I don't expect that.”

During their first meeting back in October, the group talked about the family, the Synod of Bishops and the role of the Secretariat of State. The third meeting, scheduled on February 17th and 18th, will be held before the consistory, where Pope Francis names new cardinals. 

The meetings will conclude on December 5th. The sessions will take place in the mornings and afternoons. But perhaps the Pope won't attend the Wednesday morning session, because of the general audience.
