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”.

"How nice to see you!”



"Hi, how are you? It's been a while!”


"I'm fine, thanks to God.”


"May God bless you!”


"Also to you.”



With a warm greeting the Pope welcomed a delegation of the Islamic Center of the Republic of Argentina.

 

 

 

 

Their relationship goes back years, when the Pope still served as the Archbishop of Buenos Aires, taking part in several inter-religious commissions.

 

 

 

 

During the brief meeting, the Muslim delegation expressed their best wishes for the Pope's future trip to the Holy Land.

 

 

 

 

They also gave him a copy of the Koran translated to Spanish by an Argentinian. Its silver cover is work of a goldsmith who is also a friend of the Pope. 

 

 

 

 

"A Latin American, an Argentinian, did the translation.”
