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”.

2014-05-16

Jordan will the Pope's first stop, in his three day visit to the Holy Land. He will only be there for a day, but he will have a packed schedule. 

On Saturday May 24th, he will board a plane to Amman, which is the capital of the country. About 45 minutes later, King Abdullah II and his wife will welcome Pope Francis in the royal palace, where they will meet in private. The Pope will then give a speech addressed to Jordanian authorities. 

At four o clock, Pope Francis will celebrate Mass at the Amman International Stadium, where more than 50,000 people are expected. It's here that 1,400 children will receive their First Communion. 

One of the most anticipated meetings in that country will be at roughly 7 o clock, when the Pope will meet with refugees and disabled youths in Bethany, where Jesus was Baptized

Jordan is a country where Muslims and Christians have a long history of co-existence. It also welcomes thousands of refugees from neighboring countries. More than likely, the Pope will highlight this religious co-existence as an example for other neighboring countries.

The Pope is expected to make a call for peace and to defend the rights of Christians in the Middle East, since as a minority they often face discrimination.
