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”.

Ho Chi Minh City cardinal turns 80, papal electors down to 121

2014-03-05

No more than two weeks after Pope Francis' first Consistory, the number of papal electors changed yet again. Card. Jean-Baptiste Phm Minh Mn, archbishop of Ho Chi Minh City, turned 80 on Wednesday, losing his right to vote in an eventual conclave.

Card. Mn was born in 1934. He was ordained a priest May 1965 in then-South Vietnam. After the war and Communist unification of the country, the prelate was in charge of the formation of new priests, at a time when the Church was under severe persecution.

He continued overseeing the formation of priets in Vietnam until he was ordained a bishop. He was eventually appointed archbishop of Ho Chi Minh City in 1998. John Paul II created him cardinal in 2003.

The number of papal electors now stands at 121. But will change yet again in a few days, when an the archbishop emeritus of Milan turns 80.
