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: When you start feeling superior to others, remember your sins

2014-10-22

After greeting pilgrims in St. Peter's Square, the Pope talked about division among Christians. It's something St. Paul experienced centuries ago, and the Pope said, it's still a reality, even today. 

POPE FRANCIS
"Jealousy...Some will say, 'but he bought a car and I'm jealous. This person won the lottery and I'm jealous. Everything goes right for this person and I'm jealous. FLASH. What does this do? It separates us. It starts wars. Wars don't start in the battlefield. Wars start in people's hearts with  misunderstandings and envy. The Corinthian community was like that.” 

To help bridge these problems, Pope Francis gave a few tips. Among them is learning to recognize the gifts of others. 

POPE FRANCIS
"How many people feel superior to others? Sometimes we too act like the pharisees in the parable. 'Thank God, I'm not like that person...' Acting like that is ugly. Don't do it! When you start feeling that way, remember your sins, those sins no one knows about. Humble yourself before God and tell Him, 'Lord, only you know who is superior.' Then shut your mouth. This is good for us.” 

Wednesday marks the first time the Catholic Church celebrates the feast day of St. John Paul II. The Pope talked about his spiritual legacy.

"Today we celebrate the liturgical legacy of St. John Paul II. He invited everyone to open their doors to Christ. He reminded everyone about Divine Mercy. Let's not forget his spiritual legacy. May it push us to reflect and work towards the good of the Church and of society.” 

The Pope also said a few words of support for workers of an airline company who are under the risk of being under laid off.
