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 players seemed somewhat tired as they got off the bus. Inside the Vatican, the Pope made reference to their 7 to 1 victory against the Italian team. 

"I heard about yesterday’s match. No comment.” 

It's no secret that Pope Francis is a big soccer fan. In fact, he talked about a game played back in 1986 where Karl-Heinz Rummenigge played. Now her serves as a team manager.  

"I remember that game back in 86' because I was studying in Frankfurt.” 

He then talked about the power of sports and why they're especially important for kids. 

"Sports have an educational dimension and for children this is very important.” 

The German team gave the Pope two gifts. A jersey with his name, signed by all the players  and then a soccer ball with a moving meaning. 

"Next year, we'll have a charity match in your honor. From the ticket sales, we want to donate one million euros for charity projects and causes of your choice. This regardless of the faith, creed or color of the recipients.”
