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”.

Pope reflects on the gift of science in his general audience

2014-05-21

(-ONLY VIDEO-) In his general audience, the Pope continued his catechesis on the Holy Spirit, by reflecting on the gift of science and Creation. He explained that the beauty of nature, touches on the power of the God, adding that it should trigger a 'wise stewardship of its resources.' 

SUMMARY OF POPE'S CATECHESIS: 

Dear Brothers and Sisters, 

In our continuing catechesis on the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit, we now consider the gift of knowledge.  Through this spiritual gift, we are enabled to see every person, and the world around us, in the light of God’s loving plan. 

In a sense, we see the beauty, harmony and goodness of all creation with the eyes of God its maker.  As is clear from the lives of Saint Francis of Assisi and so many other saints, the gift of knowledge gives rise to grateful contemplation of the world of nature and joyful praise of the Creator.  

The perspective given by this spiritual gift leads us to respect God’s gift of creation and to exercise wise stewardship of its resources for the benefit of the whole human family.  It also prevents us from restricting our vision to the persons and things of this world alone, forgetting that in their order, value and beauty they point beyond themselves to God, their source and ultimate end.

Let us ask the Holy Spirit to help us grow in the knowledge which enables us to perceive the love with which God guides the world, to respond with gratitude and to praise him for his infinite goodness and love.

I greet all the English-speaking pilgrims taking part in today’s Audience, including those from England and Wales, Scotland, Sweden, Norway, India, Thailand, Singapore, Indonesia, Japan, South Africa, Canada and the United States.  Upon all of you, and upon your families, I invoke the joy and peace of the Risen Lord.  God bless you all!
