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 presides over Way of the Cross at Rome's Colosseum

2014-04-18

Thousands of people flocked to Rome's historic center to mark the Passion of the Lord. Pope Francis led the prayer service for the Way of the Cross at the Colosseum.

The location symbolizes the martyrdom of early Christians, killed for sport in Imperial Roman times.

Several groups carried the Cross to each station, including a worker and businessman, two homeless people, children, immigrants, the elderly, the sick and prisoners. It evoked the suffering and challenges they face.

Msgr. Giancarlo Bregantini wrote the meditations for each of the Stations of the Cross. They compared on the suffering of Christ to modern day issues like unemployment, drug use and abandonment.

Fifty years ago, Pope Paul VI restarted the tradition to have the Way of the Cross at Rome's Colosseum.
