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 Francis listed as candidate for the Nobel Peace Prize

2014-03-05

Pope Francis was shortlisted for a Nobel Peace Prize. The Nobel Institute in Norway announced his name is one of 278 candidates total.

In his public appearances, Pope Francis constantly makes repeated calls for peace. But perhaps his best known gesture was the prayer vigil for peace in Syria. Thousands responded to his plea and packed St. Peter's Square.

Other big names on the list include Russian President Vladimir Putin. The two met in November, though it was before the breakout of tensions in Ukraine.

The 278 candidates are made up of individuals, as well as institutions. Other recognizable names on the list are Edward Snowden, and young Pakistani activist Malala Yousafzai.

In the coming months, the Nobel Committee will narrow down the list, and scrutinize the candidates between March and August. They'll announce the winner in October. If awarded, Pope Francis would be the first Pope ever to receive a Nobel Peace Prize.
