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”.

Missionaries from 5 continents greet the Pope at General Audience

2014-08-24

The weekly General Audience has moved from St. Peter's Square to the Paul VI Hall due to the Roman summer heat. Although fewer pilgrims can fit in the audience hall, those who do get in have a better chance to greet the Pope. This group of missionaries were one of the lucky ones.

"We cannot be more happy than this because there are people who came five, ten, eleven times but they don't have the chance to see the Pope, to touch him, to speak with him.”

"How can I say it, I cannot tell you... It's unique! It was something wonderful for us to have such contact with our good Pope. I don't know...I don't have the words to express the joy I'm feeling.”

They are part of the Donum Dei missionaries. They traveled to Rome to celebrate their international meeting. 

"I come from the Wallis and Futuna islands of Polynesia, which is about 13,000 miles from here. We are a group of pilgrims. We have a meeting of the Donum Dei missionary family and all the congregations from the five continents are meeting here to reflect on the situation of the world today".

Although their Papal greeting lasted only a few minutes, they had enough time to explain their missionary work to the Pope.
