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's gifts to be raffled for charity

2014-11-22

Throughout his pontificate, Pope Francis has received all kinds of gifts. 

Now, those gifts will be auctioned off in a charity raffle. Many people are interested in getting a chance to win. 

"I pick the hat.”
"Anything, Anything just to keep it as a souvenir, and say that I have something from the Pope.”
"Well, I think I'd choose the car. It's the obvious choice."

The drawing will be held on January 8th and the proceeds will go to the homeless in Rome. Tickets will be sold in stores, pharmacies and Vatican postal offices open to the public. 

"I think it sounds wonderful. I think it sounds like a good way to give back all the generosity that people have given towards him.”
"I think it's a great thing to do. Just judging from today, he has to get a lot of gifts and they just have to sit there. So this is a good way to give back to the community and use the gifts that he's been given.”

With the recent announcement that showers will be installed around the Vatican for the poor, the raffle will add to the Pope's efforts to those most in need. 

"I find it nice that he can have some money back so he can organize things for people who need them.”

Aside from helping out a good cause, winners can say they own a gift that once belonged to Pope Francis.
