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”.

Son of Floribeth Mora: “I will forever be indebted to John Paul II”

2014-04-25

The healing of Floribeth Mora led the way to the canonization of John Paul II. Before the Catholic Church recognized it as a miracle, Mexican journalist Valentina Alazraki met Floribeth Mora and her family. It's now all part of a book titled 'The Costa Rican miracle of John Paul II. How he was made Saint.'

VALENTINA ALAZRAKI
Author, "El milagro costarricense de Juan Pablo II”
"It's very easy to understand her situation and identify with her. She always repeats 'I didn't want to die because I didn't want to leave my children and grandchildren.' It's a feeling than all mothers can relate to.”

When doctors told Floribeth Mora that there was no cure for her brain aneurism, her family started expecting the worst.  

EDWIN ARCE
Son of Floribeth Mora
"The doctors told me to say goodbye to my mother, because she wasn't going to make it. That was very hard. FLASH I would get close to her to check if she had already passed away. It was really difficult, really difficult to face a situation like that.”

VALENTINA ALAZRAKI
Author, "El milagro costarricense de Juan Pablo II”
"The miracle not only cured Floribeth, but also helped her family. They were close to God before, but after the miracle they even got closer.”

Son of Floribeth Mora
"I am so thankful I feel I will forever be in debt with John Paul II. I even told the Lord: 'Lord, if you want my life take it, but spare my mother's.' My brothers and sisters really need her.”

The Mexican journalist remembers how John Paul II wanted to be remembered as the Pope who focused on family and life. For her, this miracle proves his ongoing mission
