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”.

Pope names a Special Envoy for Medjugorje

< style> February 11, 2017. Pope Francis has asked Henryk Hoser, S.A.C., bishop of Warsaw-Prague (Poland), to go to Medjugorje as Special Envoy of the Holy See. According< g> the Vatican, "the mission has the aim of acquiring a deeper knowledge of the pastoral situation there and above all, of the needs of the faithful who go there in pilgrimage, and on the basis of this, to suggest possible pastoral initiatives for the future”.

When the Pope visited Benedict XVI at his Vatican residence, they got to catch up just like old friends. They met for about 30 minutes, but there was still lots more to talk about. That's why during that brief get-together, Pope Francis invited Benedict XVI to lunch.

On Friday afternoon, Ratzinger made a short trip to Casa Santa Marta to have lunch with the Pope. At age 86, this is actually the first time Benedict XVI has publicly gone to the Pope's residence to meet him. Usually it's Pope Francis who goes out to visit him. 

In the past, Pope Francis has publicly said he enjoys having Benedict XVI around the Vatican, describing him as a wise grandfather

At lunch, they were each joined by their personal secretaries as well as Archbishop Dominique Mamberti who serves as the Secretary for Relations with States and also Msgr. Peter Brian Wells from the Secretariat of State.
