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”.

Archbishop of Seoul pays historical visit to North Korea

2014-05-23

For the first time in history, a Cardinal crossed the border that separates the two Koreas: on May 21, Archbishop of Seoul, Andrew Yeom Soo-jung, set foot in North Korea.

The goal of his trip was to visit the industrial area in Kaesong, where a group of citizens from both Koreas work together thanks to an agreement between the two countries.

Cardinal Yeom Soo-jung, who is also Apostolic administrator of Pyongyang, received permission to visit North Korea, something that his predecessors never achieved. His visit was short, returning to South Korea on the same day.

Still, it left some memorable images, like the Cardinal praying in front of the fence that separates both Koreas.

The visit was strictly pastoral, but some sources say that the Korean Cardinal was also trying to check if a papal visit to the country was viable

The government of South Korea, through its Ministry of Unification, denied these reports.

Pope Francis will travel to South Korea on August to take part in the Asian Youth Day and to beatify 124 Korean martyrs.
