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”.

"She wrote a book, called "The Foundations”. In it, she describes the 17 places in Spain where,  little by little, she installed what she called "bird houses”. She would call her nuns "doves”.

To commemorate the 500th anniversary of Saint Teresa of Avila's birth, these 17 Spanish cities came together to promote a pilgrimage where religion and culture go hand in hand. 

The initiative is called "Footsteps of Teresa” and among the cities participating are Ávila, Burgos, Valladolid, Sevilla and Granada.

President, "Footsteps of Teresa” Foundation
"The first goal is to come closer to Saint Teresa. To look for her. The second, logically, is to go through at least four of these cities and end at the fifth one, which is Ávila, where she was born, the point where everything began.”

Pope Francis is looking into possibly visiting  Ávila to celebrate this anniversary. 

Whether he visits Spain or not, the organizers of "Footsteps of Teresa” are confident that thousands of pilgrims from around the world will get to know first hand this Doctor of the Church  and mystic through the cities where she lived.
