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”.

Workers prepare Amman Stadium for Saturday Mass with Pope Francis

2014-05-23

Last minute rehearsal under the baking desert sun, and the finishing touches at Amman International Stadium kept organizers busy, less than 24 hours before the Pope's arrival in Jordan.

Banners welcoming Pope Francis, and the endless rows of seats mark the spot where the Pope will celebrate the largest, most populous event in his three-day trip to the Holy Land.

On Saturday, just three hours after his arrival, the Pope will celebrate Mass at the Stadium, with a capacity for nearly 30,000 people. 

Workers were busy lining up rows of chairs, or mounting the stage, a make-shift altar for the Mass. 

Hundreds of Christian refugees from nearby Palestine, Syria and Iraq are expected to attend the Mass at the stadium.

"The refugees, which we are helping, they are focusing in the areas where they can live, economically and socially.”

During the ceremony, 1,400 children will receive their First Communion, including a number of refugee children. The liturgy will be in Italian and Arabic.

Pope Francis will be the second Pope to preside Mass at the Stadium. The first was Benedict XVI during his trip in 2009.
