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”.

Next World Meeting of Families unveils its official icon

2014-09-08

This is the official icon of the World Meeting of Families, which means it will be present in all events taking place in this massive family gathering in Philadelphia next year. 

It was designed by American artist Neilson Carlin. It's unusual because it includes Jesus' grandparents: St. Joachim and St. Anna. 

The next World Meeting of Families will be held in September 2015. It's held every three years and thousands of people attend.  More than a million people gathered in Milan in 2012 and in Valencia in 2006. 

These figures, though, vary significantly if the Pope decides to join the gathering. Although it's not official yet, Pope Francis is expected to attend. 

In fact in mid September, the Archbishop of Philadelphia, Msgr. Charles Chaput will visit Rome and may return home with the Pope's personal confirmation.
