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 Francis... also a manga 'superhero'?

2014-01-10

We thought we had seen all: first a portrait of Pope Francis that could only be seen from above, and then a wax statue that has been visited by tourists from all over the world. But now there's a manga comic book, starring none other than Pope Francis.

Titled 'Pope Francis. I Believe in Mercy,' it's based on the life of Jorge Bergoglio, from his background to his preaching style. Manga artist Sean Lam made the illustrations based on the writings of American author Regina Doman.

REGINA DOMAN
Author of 'Pope Francis. I believe in Mercy'
"I was asked to write the comic the same week that he was elected. And so I was alone out there, with all the others journalists, you know, trying to find out about this man, Jorge Bergoglio, who had been elected to the Chair of St. Peter. And I found absolutely fascinating that he is our first Pope from the Americas, from Latinamerica.”

The comic book starts when young Jorge Bergoglio discovers his vocation in Buenos Aires, and goes all the way to the day of his election as Pope and his first words as Pontiff from the balcony St. Peter's.

REGINA DOMAN
Author of 'Pope Francis. I believe in Mercy'
"Although Pope Francis just to many people would look like an ordinary man, I think that his short time in the Papacy has shown us that he truly is a superhero. First of all, he is not afraid, he is not afraid of people, no matter how ugly they may seem to other people”.

It is not the first time Regina Doman and Sean Lam join forces to illustrate the life of a Pope: they have also produced a story on Benedict XVI called 'Habemus Papam!'
