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”.

Cardinal Tauran: After a month working with John Paul II, I knew he was a saint

2014-04-27

More than a year ago, he announced to the world the election of Pope Francis.

French Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran has always been close to the Popes. He worked closely with John Paul II and Benedict XVI. He met Pope Wojtyla on his appointment as the Vatican's foreign minister.

CARD. JEAN-LOUIS TAURAN
"I remember that he jokingly told me: 'They will say you are too young. How old are you?' I told him I was 47. He responded: 'Ah, yes. You are young, but you'll get over that sickness soon.”

But anecdotes aside, Cardinal Tauran said he knew right away that his boss, the person who appointed him, was a saint.

CARD. JEAN-LOUIS TAURAN
"I knew from the first moment, he led a holy life. I told my secretary the first month. I would met with the Pope each Wednesday afternoon. And after the fourth time, I told my secretary: 'This man is a saint.' He lived immersed in God, he never lost contact with God.”

The Vatican confirmed that Benedict XVI will also be at the canonization. Card. Tauran explained why the work of the Pope emeritus is closely tied to John XXIII.

CARD. JEAN-LOUIS TAURAN
"John XXIII opened the Church's doors. It's no longer a Church that condemns, it welcomes. Benedict XVI is a Pope that drew crowds to listen to his teachings, and I would say that with Pope Francis, people come to interact with him.”

Tomorrow, thousands of pilgrims will witness the canonization of John Paul II and John XXIII. They were Popes that enjoyed surrounding themselves with people. But at the same time, Cardinal Tauran also said both Popes were experts at showing the importance of prayer and inner peace.
