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”.

2014-11-14

In his homily at Casa Santa Marta, the Pope spoke on the importance of leading by example when transmitting the faith to children. Appropriately, a group of boys and girls from a Roman parish were present at the Mass. 

POPE FRANCIS
"We all have a responsibility to give our very best and the very best that we have is our faith: teach it to them, but teach it by example! Words are pointless… Today, words are pointless. In today’s world obsessed with images, where everyone has these cell phones, words are pointless ... Example! Example!”

Lastly, the Pope encouraged Christians to embrace an attitude of fraternity and to leave indifference behind.

"Do we teach them what we heard in the First Reading: to walk in love and truth? Or do we teach them with words, and then allow our lives to go in another direction? But it is our responsibility to look out for these children! A Christian has to take care of children, little ones and pass on the faith, pass on what he lives, what is in his heart. We cannot ignore the little plants that grow". 

"We all have a responsibility to give our very best and the very best that we have is our faith: give it to them, but give it by example! Words are pointless… Today, words are pointless. In today’s world obsessed with images, where everyone has these cell phones, words are pointless ... Example! Example!”

"In these Sacraments – let me ask you a question - is prayer a sacrament? ... Out loud now! ... No!
