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”.

New Christmas tree arrives to St. Peter's Square

2014-12-04

Christmas season is now officially in St. Peter's Square with the installment of this 82 foot Christmas tree.

Once the massive tree was set up, pilgrims and visitors waited for the decorations. 

"I think it's beautiful. I think it's a little bit late because December already started, but in the end it's beautiful and the Vatican is beautiful also.”

"I haven't really had much of a chance to look at this one, but it looks like it's not decorated yet. It might look really nice when all the lights are on.”

The tree is from the Italian region of Calabria and is approximately 70 years old. 

Even though seeing the arrival of the Christmas tree was exciting, some are making sure they don't forget the reason for the season. 

"I love Christmas decorations. I love trees, they're very pretty, but for me the importance of Christmas and the significance of it is that Jesus came to die for our sins and has made us right with God.”

The Christmas tree, along with the Nativity scene, will be illuminated on the evening of December 19th.
