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”.

Pope Francis: If someone feels the call to be a missionary, then do it!

2014-09-17

A christian must go out and make the message of the Gospel known. The Pope thanked missionaries for the work they carry out, just like the apostles did, during his General Audience. 

POPE FRANCIS
"They left everything to announce Jesus Christ. We thank the Lord because our Church has so many missionaries, and has had many missionaries. And we need more still!”

The Pope had a message for the youth who are discerning to follow their example of announcing the Gospel.

POPE FRANCIS
"Maybe among so many young men and women there is someone who has the desire to become a missionary. "Go forward, this is beautiful! To bring the Gospel of Jesus. Be courageous.”

During the General Audience, Pope Francis explained why the Creed says that the Church is "Catholic and Apostolic”. He said that it is Catholic because it has a universal message that is destined for all people, races and cultures. He added that it is apostolic  because it is missionary, like Jesus' first disciples. 

POPE FRANCIS
"If the apostles remained there, in the Cenacle, instead of going out to the preach the Gospel, the Church would only be the Church of that people, of that city. But they all went around the world, from the moment the Church was born, from the moment the Holy Spirit came. This is why we go out.”

Pope Francis sent a message of encouragement to Middle Eastern Christians as well, saying that "despite the difficulties, to be courageous and joyful bearers of the message of salvation.”

Before concluding his audience, he reminded those present of his trip to Albania on Sunday and asked them to accompany him with their prayers.
