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”.

Asian Youth Day 2014? Pope Francis may travel to South Korea

2014-02-16

The Vatican says it's considering the option of having the Pope travel to South Korea in the summer. From August 13th to the 17th, there will be a mini World Youth Day and locals are hoping the Pope will accept their invitation. 

The theme of the event is 'Asian Youth: Wake Up! The Glory of Martyrs shines on You.' 

The diocese of Daejeon has launched a welcome video shedding light on the thousands of Korean martyrs who were persecuted for their faith. 

The five day event will be a chance for youths to rediscover the roots of their faith. It will also include several workshops, pilgrimages and of course prayer. 

This will be the sixth Asian Youth Day. The first one took place in Thailand in 1999 and the last one in the Philippines in 2009.

Organizers expect 2,000 pilgrims this year, but it's clear that if  Pope Francis decides to go, the number would multiply. If he decides to go, Pope Francis would be the first Pontiff to attend an Asian Youth Day.
