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”.

Vatican asks for a fair distribution of energy

2014-04-20

One out of five people, don't have access to electricity. About 250 million people still depend on wood and coal for energy and heat. 

The Vatican's Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace published a new document that shows how a fair distribution of natural resources can help developing countries. It's titled "Energy, Justice and Peace.”

CARD. PETER TURKSON
President, Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace
"This is an attempt not to be prescriptive with any solutions about energy, because we are not experts. But the Church recognizes that we can always provide some support, some direction, some inspiration to all human endeavors, including science and research.”

The document talks about energy as a common good: a gift God gave to all mankind to be enjoyed by all. Failing to distribute it fairly, can have dangerous consequences. 

CARD. PETER TURKSON
President, Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace
"Because energy underlies a whole lot of aspects of human society and human life, it can be a source of conflict, it can be a source of war, it can be a source of development, it can a source of under-development, it can be a source of oppression.”

With this document, the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace is taking concrete steps to echo Pope Francis' call to respect mother nature and to help those in the outskirts of society.
