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”.

Three new saints: Jesuit missionary, French nun and Quebec's first bishop

2014-04-03

The Catholic Church has three new saints. Pope Francis approved their equivalent canonizations on Thursday. The Pope issued the decree after meeting with Card. Angelo Amato, the prefect for the Congregation for the Causes of Saints.

The three new saints include Spanish Jesuit missionary José de Anchieta, also known as the Apostle of Brazil. He co-founded the cities of Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, and is known for spreading Catholicism among indigenous groups  in that country.

Blessed Marie of the Incarnation was an Ursuline nun, regarded as the Mother of the Catholic Church in Canada. She had a vision to move to the newly founded colony of Quebec to spread the Catholic faith. There, she founded the first school ever in modern-day Canada.

The third new saint is François de Laval. He was a French missionary in Canada, who became the first bishop of Quebec, and orchestrated the expansion of the Catholic Church in the colony.

Within the decree, Pope Francis also recognized the miracles attributed to: Indian priest Ciriaco Elia Chavaro; Italian Minim Friar Nicola da Longobardi; Indian Carmenlite nun Eufrasia of the Sacred Heart; and Italian Friar Luigi della Consolata.

The Pope also recognized the heroic virtues of: Spanish Capuchin Friar Francisco Simón Ródenas; Italian priest Adolfo Barberis; French priest Marie Clement Staub; Spaniard Augustine Friar Sebastian Elorza Arizmendi; Brazilian nun Maria Teresa of the Eucharistic Jesus; Spanish nun Juana de la Concepción Sanchez Garcia; Italian nun Maria Giuseppina Teresa Marcucci; and Italian layman Luigi Rocchi.
