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”.

"The crisis that Europe is lgoing through is not essentially economic nor financial, nor is it about a singular political model. It is a crisis that is within the person.”

With this diagnosis in hand, the 2nd European Catholic Social Days centered on how to build a more fraternal and just society. In regards to charity, religious orders have much to offer.

"We all agree that there is a great necessity of a more fair social order but the poor who are hungry, that are sick or that are dying cannot wait until this is resolved.”

Rethinking the economy, receiving migrant or caring for the youth and families are just some of the keys for change. 

For this reason, Evangelii Gaudium, was very much present. In it the Pope asks that market interests should not be converted into absolute rule. Cardinal Marx reflected on this sentiment.

"We must not permit the market to permeate all areas of life and dominate us. The social market becomes one part of society but the society its not the market. Not all things are regulated by market and financial questions”

Through a message sent to participants, Pope Francis asked that their witness awaken "the consciences of a reality in which temporal goods and social order should be at the service of the person.”
