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”.

"We are all drawn to the periphery. We all want to get away from the center, even our own personal center. The periphery becomes a sort of refuge, that can be unsteady, or can be very productive, if anyone tries to do something while outside this center. So it's an intriguing title, which draws attention. Then there's also, the Pope's model, where he said right away that he came from the periphery. So. I think that there are number of factors that make this title very relevant.”

About 200 speakers and presenters will dissect issues of violence and war around the globe. They include the Italian ministers for labor and education, as well as the Vatican's permanent observer to the UN. In addition to politicians, business and cultural leaders will also talk about how to achieve piece and bring hope through dialogue and friendship to conflict areas. Religious leaders, like the Custos of the Holy Land, and athletes and entertainers will also take part.

"With this year's Meeting, we hope to find people that we know will share the way of the truth, a path of discovery, a path of positivity. Above all, we hope that this meeting will change us once again.”

The program includes over 100 conferences, 17 shows, 14 exhibitions, and 10 sports events. All the work will be possible thank to the hard work from 4,000 volunteers.
