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's Angelus: Words can also kill...

2014-02-17

It was a busy Sunday morning in St. Peter's Square. About 50,000 people came out to hear the Pope's Angelus. Reflecting on the day's Gospel, he talked about the negative effects of gossip. 

POPE FRANCIS
"Words can also kill. When we hear that someone has a poisonous tongue, what does that mean? It means that their words can kill.” 

The Pope also talked about God's higher justice, explaining that Jesus didn't want to abolish the law, but rather to fulfill it. 

Part of living a saintly life, explained the Pope, starts with not giving into gossip. He said it may be fun at first, but eventually it fills one's heart with bitterness. 

POPE FRANCIS
"Do we want to live life gossiping about one another? Yes or No? Do you want to live attached to gossip? Yes or No? So, we agree. No gossip!”

Among the crowd, the Pope greeted a youth group from the Czech Republic who waved back with their flags. And to liven up things even more, another group brought hundreds of balloons, and released them into the air just moments before the end of the Angelus.
