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”.

2014-08-04

Tens of thousands of young people are in Rome to meet with Pope Francis. They all have two things in common: They are altar servers and they're from Germany, Austria or Switzerland.  

BENEDIKT HOHL 
Archdiocese of Munich and Freising 
"I think that from Munich there's about 4.000 and from whole Germany around 50.000 people here.  It's a very special moment in my life because I have never been close to the Pope, or someone like that, that near.” 

It will take place Tuesday evening in St. Peter's Square, which will include a prayer session with Pope Francis. The theme of the pilgrimage is based on being free enough to do the right thing. 


MSGR. KARL-HEINZ WIESEMANN 
German Episcopal Conference 
"We want to say to young people: 'You are free in Christ and Christ is giving you the power to do good things with your freedom.” 

The four day pilgrimage will include group meetings in Rome's major squares and Masses in Papal Basilicas. But without a doubt, the main event will be the meeting with Pope Francis. 

ALEXANDER BOTHE 
Pilgrimage Organizer
"We expect that he will open his heart, in a way. We are really happy to pray with him the vespers, tomorrow in the evening, because we think that the special vesper of Santa Maria Maggiore is really in his heart.” 


Besides praying together,  several altar servers will also speak with Pope Francis, sharing information about their dioceses.
