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”.

2014-04-08

Dutch Jesuit priest, Frans van der Lugt was reportedly beaten and shot to death by masked men in Syria. According to a statement issued on Monday, by the Jesuit Headquarters in Rome, he was shot twice in the head, in front of the Jesuit residence in the city of Homs. 

The 75 year old priest had been working in Syria since 1966. He decided to stay in the war torn country to help all civilians- Christians and Muslims, in this dire time of need. 

Back in January, he even posted a Youtube video, where he publicly asked for help and support for the sick,  poor and homeless in the region. 

In February, members of the United Nations met with the Jesuit priest, to supply aid and to hear first hand accounts of the situation, which included starvation and death.
