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 to Albanian authorities: Let no one use God as a shield when carrying out violent acts

2014-09-21

Pope Francis arrived to  "Mother Teresa” international airport, in Tirana, shortly before 9 AM. Several government officials of Albania were waiting for him there, and he was officially welcomed at the presidential palace shortly after his arrival.

In his first address in the Muslim majority country, the Pope highlighted the importance of peaceful coexistence among religions. He cited Albania as an example, and explained that religion should always promote dialogue, not violence.

POPE FRANCIS
"Let no one consider using God as a shield  while planning and carrying out acts of violence and oppression! May no one use religion as a pretext for actions against human dignity and against the fundamental rights of every man and woman, above all, the right to life and the right of everyone to religious freedom!"

The Pope went on to explain that education is one of the best ways of promoting inter-religious dialogue and peace.

POPE FRANCIS
"The peaceful coexistence of different religious communities is, in fact, a priceless benefit to peace and to harmonious human advancement."

The Pope also referred to what he called "the new challenges" that the world faces today. Among them, protecting the rights of families.

POPE FRANCIS
"Alongside the globalization of the markets there must also be a corresponding globalization of solidarity; together with economic growth there must be a greater respect for creation; alongside the rights of individuals, there must be the guaranteed rights of those who are a bridge between the individual and the state, the family being the first and foremost of such institutions."

Concluding his address, the Pope said that growth and development must be accessible to all, and not just to a selected few.
