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 to Volunteers: Don't use the poor to make money

2014-12-04

Drum rolls greeted Pope Francis as he walked in the Vatican's Paul VI Hall.

It was an audience between the Pope and a large group of Italian volunteers who fight against poverty and social exclusion. They are members of the Federation of Christian Organizations for International Volunteer Service. 

In his speech, the Pope thanked them for their work. 

POPE FRANCIS
"It's quite necessary to give witness to the value of gratuity. The poor should not be used to make a profit.” 

He then explained that poverty makes itself present in more ways than one. He then called for solidarity. 

POPE FRANCIS
"It's about fighting against the structural causes of poverty: The lack of social equality, the lack of work and of housing. Also, the rejection of social rights for workers.” 

Once he gave his address, the Pope also took time to greet some of the 5,000 participants from the group, which is actually the biggest of its kind in Italy.
