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 calls for peace in Ukraine. Prays for child killed by Italian mafia

2014-01-27

As a symbol of peace, two white doves were released from Pope's window during Sunday's Angelus. With two children at his side, he also took the time to pray for a three year old boy, Cocó Campolongo, who was recently killed by the Italian mafia, after his grandfather failed to pay a debt.

 

 

POPE FRANCIS
"Let’s pray for Cocò, who is surely in Heaven with Jesus. For those who have committed this crime: may they repent and convert to the Lord.”




With tens of thousands of people out in St. Peter's Square, the Pope called for peace in Ukraine, where conflict has led to violence.

 

 


POPE FRANCIS
"I'm united in prayer with Ukraine, in particular for those who have lost their lives during the violence of the past days, and for their families.”



During his prayer, the Pope reflected on how Jesus began his public life in Galilee: an area known for being on the outskirts and for its cultural, religious and racial diversity. Just like Jesus, he said, society must not shy away from dialogue.

 

 

POPE FRANCIS
"Let's welcome the Lord's gaze and His voice. Let's follow Him. So that the joy of the Gospel can reach the ends of the earth. So that even hidden corners can see the light of the Gospel.”

 

 


Towards the end of the Angelus, the Pope prayed for people who suffer from Leprosy. He sent a special greeting to people from China, Korea and Vietnam, wishing them a Happy Solar New Year.
