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”.

Made in the Caribbean: A look inside Living Water Community

2014-03-30

One of few Catholic movements founded in the Caribbean region is the Living Water Community. With about 700 members and houses in three islands, it gives support to people in need of  material or spiritual help. 

RHODA MAINGOT
Founder, Living Water Community
"I was terrified when I begun that experience, and I felt the Lord speaking and saying loudly to me: 'Do not be afraid, Do not be afraid, I call you and I comission you tonight to go and show the world how to love.'”

Rhoda Maingot admits she was scared, but when she felt her calling in 1975 in Trinidad, she was ready to start this new chapter, where her main mission is to help. 

RHODA MAINGOT
Founder, Living Water Community
"We have many, many ministries, mainly to the poor, to the dispossesed, we have homes for cancer patients, for HIV/AIDS, for abandoned children, homeless boys...Many homes like that in Trinidad.”

And though the figures of the Living Water Community may seem small, it already helped two bishops, find their vocation as priests. 

One of them describes the Living Water Community like finding a home inside the Catholic Church.

MSGR. CHARLES JASON GORDON
Bishop of Barbados and St. Vincent
"It's really about being part of a family. And having a family that no matter what I am doing, and no matter where my duties call me, and no matter where my minister calls me, that family is my home that I will return to from time to time.”
 
With two new Cardinals from the Caribbean region, the members of the Living Water Community feel even closer to the Vatican and the rest of the world. Not by chance these islanders want to take "living water” to all those who are thirsty.
