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”.

Fernando Sanchez is one of the youngest ambassadors to the Vatican, and that's why he was one of the leading figures in the meeting between the Pope and the Diplomatic Corps.


Among the 180 ambassadors that were present, Pope Francis remembered that it was the birthday of the young Costa Rican ambassador.

 

Happy Birthday.
Thank you, Your Holiness.
May we know how many?
40.
They send young ambassadors now. Congratulations: So young and already one...

 

Fernando Sanchez gave his credentials as Costa Rican ambassador to the Vatican in December 2010. Back then, his children made Benedict XVI smile many times.
