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”.

Vatican's Secretary of State, Pietro Parolin, to travel to Mexico to discuss immigration

2014-07-13

The Vatican's Secretary of State, Cardinal Pietro Parolin, will travel to Mexico to discuss the wave of massive immigration from Latin American countries to the U.S.  

Officials from El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and of course Mexico, will join in to address the issue and to see what can be done to strengthen their international cooperation. 

Mexico's Secretary of Exterior Relations, Jose Antonio Meade Kuribreña, will welcome Cardinal Parolin to the forum. Discussion points will include the problems that trigger massive immigration in the first place, the protection of migrants and what protocols should be taken when deported. 

The issue of course isn't new, but recently it has gotten some steam for the rising number of unaccompanied children, most of them from Central America, who've headed north, in the hopes of making it to the United States. 

It's estimated that over the last year, more than 50,000 children have been detained in the U.S alone, for crossing the border illegally.
 
Parolin will also be presented with an 'Aguila Azteca' recognition. It's a high honor, given to foreigners who have promoted social improvements in Mexico.  

The forum will take place on Monday July 14th and on Tuesday, July 15th, Parolin, who speaks Spanish fluently,  is scheduled to celebrate Mass in Mexico City's Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe, which is the most visited Marian shrine in the world, with Mexican Archbishop, Cardinal Norberto Rivera Carrera.
