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”.

Rhythm, Music and Dancing in St. Peter's Square

2014-11-02

By the end of last week's general audience St. Peter's looked a bit like a Spanish party.

There was plenty of dancing and as part of the celebration, also plenty of rhythm.

They didn’t just bring music to St. Peter's Square. Their costumes spoke out pretty loudly as well. It's all part of a traditional Spanish dance, called 'jota'.

"It was back in 1517 when someone first danced 'jotas' for the emperor Charles V.  Ever since, our village, in the north of Spain, keeps alive this tradition of our homeland.” 

For a week they toured Italy and visited Venice, Florence and Pisa. Their last stop was Rome, where they danced and followed the Pope's general audience front row and all.

"This is second time we visit Italy and also the second time we perform for a Pope. Thirteen years ago we were here with Pope John Paul II and today we were lucky enough to be close to Pope Francis.”

As with any catchy beat, a crowd cheered them on at the end of the audience to take part in the celebration. 

So, through rhythm and catchy beats, this group proved that their tradition is still very much alive.
