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”.

CARD. JORGE MARÍA MEJÍA
October 2009
"When John Paul II was going through his last days, I said: 'I want to see him before he dies.' So I visited him at Vatican. He was still lucid, but couldn't talk. He looked at me and nodded. I told him 'Your Holiness, it's me, Jorge.' 'Your Holiness, I would give up my life for you.' But instead he died... May he protect us all, from Heaven. And may we see him proclaimed a Saint.”

He was the Archivist and Librarian of the Holy Roman Church from 1989 to 2003, when retired at the age of 80.

Two days after the election of Pope Francis he suffered a heart-attack and the new Pope went to visit him at the hospital.

Upon his death, Pope Francis sent a telegram to his brother. In the message, the Pope explained that they were lifelong friends.
