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 and G8 review Vatican financial practices

2014-02-17

Mass at Casa Santa Marta kicked off the third round of sessions for the Council of Cardinals. They advise Pope Francis on Church governance and reform of the Roman Curia.

The Vatican made no images of the meetings available, but it released a statement.

The eight cardinals and the Pope poured over the initial reports, pieced together by experts, to scrutinize the economic and financial structure of the Holy See.

In the coming sessions, the so-called G8 will also hear from the Commission that analyzed the Vatican Bank or IOR. In addition, they'll meet with the 15 cardinals that oversee the balance sheets for the Holy  See.

The Council's secretary, Cardinal Rodríguez Maradiaga, said there would be no surprises coming out of these sessions. But, the Pope could certainly make a move, just like last time.

The day's side story was the lunch the Council's only Italian hosted for the other members. But it wasn't much of a stretch, considering that Card. Giuseppe Bertello lives only a few minutes from Casa Santa Marta.
