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 congratulates all dads on the Feast Day of St. Joseph

2014-03-19

(-ONLY VIDEO-) In his weekly general audience, Pope Francis congratulated all dads on the Feast Day of St. Joseph.  The Pope highlighted that as a father, St. Joseph accompanied Jesus in wisdom, age and grace. Towards the end of the audience, the crowd joined the Pope as he said the Lord's Prayer in honor of all dads, including those who have passed away.  

SUMMARY OF POPE'S CATECHESIS IN ENGLISH: 

Dear Brothers and Sisters:

Today, we celebrate the feast of Saint Joseph, Spouse of the Virgin Mary and Patron of the universal Church. Saint Joseph is venerated as the "guardian” of the Holy Family, and in this role he serves as a model for all fathers and educators.  

Joseph watched over Jesus’ human development – his growth, as Saint Luke tells us, "in wisdom, age and grace” (2:52).  We think of how Joseph, as the carpenter of Nazareth, taught the young Jesus his trade and the value of work.  Joseph also quietly imparted to Jesus that wisdom which consists above all in reverence for the Lord, prayer and fidelity to his word, and obedience to his will.  

Joseph’s paternal example helped Jesus to grow, on a human level, in his understanding and appreciation of his unique relationship to his heavenly Father.  With Our Lady, Joseph guided the young Jesus as he responded to the working of the Holy Spirit in his heart and in his life.  By his example and prayers, may Saint Joseph be a sure guide to all parents, priests and teachers charged with the education of our young.

I am pleased to greet the English-speaking visitors and pilgrims present at today’s Audience, including those from England, Ireland, Denmark, Indonesia and the United States.  In a special way I greet the delegation from Sophia University in Japan, which this year marks the centenary of its founding.  Upon all of you I invoke the joy and peace of Jesus our Lord!
