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”.

Mexican culture adds color to the Vatican's Christmas

2013-12-15

Since 2007, some of the most spectacular and colorful Christmas decorations at the Vatican come from half-way across the world. This monumental Nativity set, made in ceramic, and these tree ornaments, on display at Paul VI Hall, come from Mexico. More specifically, the state of Veracruz.

The state governor presented their gifts personally to Pope Francis.

Mexico does them each year?

Yes, every year. But this year it was our turn, Veracruz. We ask you to bless the people of Veracruz, we're very devout, so that we can continue growing and developing.

In addition to the hand crafts, the official delegation also gave the Pope an official jersey that the Mexican soccer team will use to dispute next year's World Cup in Brazil.

You will turn me into a supporter of all of the teams.

The Pope and all visitors to the Hall will be able to see these unique Nativity figures until the end of January. A sawdust carpet welcomes all visitors, and leads them to the clay star and sheep's wool ornaments that decorate the Christmas tree.

Mexico's Christmas has arrived to the Vatican.
