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”.

The gift of music for Pope Francis

2014-01-12

The gift of dance: That's what this Italian group decided to give to Pope Francis, when they stopped by St. Peter's Square. 

Dressed in full costume, they did what they do best, singing songs and dancing to music they composed themselves. 

"We prepared the songs and we also mixed in some religious compositions that aren't part of our genre, but we made an effort to make it all come together for this special trip.” 

Aside from all the beats, the group also made sure it brought enough regional food for the Pope

"All the women got together to prepare some baskets with typical food from Abruzzo and we all gave them to the Pope.” 
 
For weeks they prepared for the big trip. Everything from their colorful costumes to their performance. But they say, the effort was well worth it. 

"When it comes down to it, yes it was worth it. We feel like the Pope is opening his doors and also our hearts. So, really I hope we can do this all over again in the future.” 

Even though they don't know if they'll get to perform again in St. Peter's Square, they say this experience was enough to start off the New Year right.
