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 Francis advances eight new causes of sainthood

January 23, 2017. On January 20, Pope Francis met with Cardinal Angelo Amato, the prefect for the Congregation for the Causes of Saints to announce the publication of decrees for the advancement of eight causes of sainthood.

Pope Francis mainly inspires with his close and direct gestures. His ideas, though more unknown, are all the same inspiring. Among them is the role of Latin America in History.

If there's someone who helped Jorge Bergoglio shape those ideas, it would be Uruguayan philosopher Alberto Methol Ferré. He passed away in 2009.

"Father Bergoglio followed Methol Ferré very closely from Argentina. He felt for him a great interest, personal esteem and, I would say, personal admiration.”


An admiration that can be explained with the book 'The Pope and the philosopher,' a long form interview where Methol Ferré explains the highlights of his thought and beliefs.

Pope Francis actually shares some of them, like the criticism to the current economic system, and the social exclusion it creates.

"It's a society where financial capitalism without any scruples destroys every moral bound. The same society that finds in a desperate individualism and hedonism its most accurate expression.”


When the book was published in Argentina back in 2007, then Cardinal Bergoglio wrote its introduction and used to give it to seminarians.
 
Now it's been translated to other languages, it will make help the ideas Pope Francis as close as his gestures.
