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 to Jesuit universities: A theologian who doesn't pray ends up sinking in narcissim

2014-04-10

Pope Francis met with profesors and students of three universities in Rome run by the Society of Jesus: the Pontifical Gregorian University, the Pontifical Biblical Institute, and the Pontifical Oriental Institute.
 
In his speech, Pope Francis asked them to protect history and always looks to the future.

POPE FRANCIS
"Be aware of the present but always have your eyes fixed on the future...But far, eh? Look to the horizon with creativity and imagination, seeking to have a global vision of the situations and real challenges. Find a way of facing them together, looking for new paths without fear.”

He added that pontifical universities aren't meant to be factories for philosophers and theologians, since a theologian who doesn't pray "ends up sinking in narcissism.”

The Pope also called on proffesors to create a warm atmosphere in class, so that they stay connected with their students.
