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 in Santa Marta: We can't pray as if we don't have a history with God

2014-10-07

During his daily morning Mass at Casa Santa Marta, Pope Francis explained on how to pray well. He said that when Christians pray, they should remember their own sins as well as their own personal history with Jesus.

POPE FRANCIS
"When Jesus says to Martha: 'You worry and are troubled by many things, but there is only one thing you need. Mary has chosen the better part'. What is it? To listen to the Lord and to remember. We can't pray every day as if we do not have a history. Each one of us has their own”. 

The Pope concluded that many times our daily duties distract from what's important and make it difficult to remember. 


SUMMARY OF THE POPE'S HOMILY

"This habit of remembering our life is not very common practice. We forget things, we live in the moment and then forget the past. And each of us has a story: a story of grace, a story of sin, a story of journey, so many things ... It is a good thing to pray with our history. [A prayer like] the one Paul does, where he tells a piece of his story, but in general says: 'He has chosen me! He saved me! He was my companion on the journey ... '. "

"When Jesus says to Martha: 'You are worried and troubled about many things, but you only need one thing. Mary has chosen the better part. 'What does he mean? [He means] Listening to the Lord and remembering. You cannot pray every day as if we did not have a story. Each of us has his or her own. And with this story in our heart we approach prayer, like Mary. Often we are distracted, like Martha, by work, by the day’s events, by those things that we have to do, and we forget this story".

"Remembering that we were chosen, chosen by God. Remembering our journey of covenant. Hve we respected this covenant, or not? No, we are sinners and we remember this, and we remember God’s promise to us which never disappoints, which is our hope. This is the true prayer”.
