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 Francis: The Church needs more female theologians

2014-12-05

The International Theological Commission introduced its five year study plan to Pope Francis. 

It's a period where respected theologians investigate key issues even further and then advise the Pope on these matters. The president of the Commission is German Cardinal Gerhard Müller

"In this plenary session, members have chosen the topics they will study in this quinquennium.” 

Currently the Commission has 30 members, of which only five are women. The Pope emphasized that more female theologians are needed. 

POPE FRANCIS
"In the ever more diverse make up of the Commission, I want to see a higher presence of women...We're still not there yet. They're the strawberries on the cake, but we need more of them.” 

The Pope then highlighted what women can contribute something unique to the world of theology. 

POPE FRANCIS
"Female theologians can shed light, for the good of everyone, on certain unexplored and profound aspects of the mystery of Christ. I invite all of you to take advantage of these specific contributions women can make in matters of faith.” 

For the next five years, this Commission will study religious liberty, the relationship between faith and the Sacraments.
