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”.

"Two are from Germany, two from England, or Ireland, I'm not sure. Eight total, right? With  Card. O'Malley, who's part of the commission. We need to move forward on this. Zero tolerance.”

Leading up to the event, the Commission for the Protection of Minors, presided by Card. Sean O'Malley, will meet on Sunday.

They are drafting new statutes, and coming up with a new structure. The goal is to help the wounds of abuse heal, to prevent abuse and to make it a priority for the entire Church, to solve this problem.

POPE FRANCIS

"A priest that does this betrays the Body of the Lord, because these priests need to lead this boy, this girl, this young man, this young woman, to holiness. And this boy, this girl, they trust him. And this priest, instead of leading them to holiness, abuses them. This is very serious.” 

The Commission for the Protection of Minors is also looking into adding members from Asia and Africa, which are currently not represented.
