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 explains what happened during the Synod of the Family

2014-12-10

(-ONLY VIDEO-) During his weekly general audience, Pope Francis shed light on the recent Synod of the Family, which took place back in October. 

The Pope said Bishops were free to discuss all topics since there was no censorship to limit them. He went even further adding that no one in the Synod, questioned the 'fundamental truths about marriage.'

SUMMARY OF THE POPE'S CATECHESIS

Dear Brothers and Sisters, 

This morning we begin a new series of catecheses devoted to the family.  As you know, the pastoral challenges involving the family were discussed in a recent meeting of the Synod of Bishops in preparation for the next Ordinary Assembly of the Synod in October, 2015. 

 The meeting began with a very frank discussion of those serious challenges, in the light of the fundamental truths about the sacrament of Matrimony – its indissolubility, unity, fidelity and openness to life.  
The fruits of this period of discussion and discernment were collected in a preliminary report, which was then discussed in smaller groups.  

The observations and suggestions which emerged were incorporated in a Final Report, which served as the basis for the Final Message of the Synod Fathers.  The Final Report is being sent to the Bishops throughout the world, and the results of this consultation will be brought to the Synod meeting next October.  

I ask all of you to pray, through the intercession of Mary, Mother of the Church, that the Synod process will result in pastoral decisions truly beneficial to the family, the Church and society.

I greet the English-speaking pilgrims and visitors taking part in today’s Audience, including the groups from Denmark, Nigeria, Australia and the United States of America.  Upon all of you, and your families, I invoke joy and peace in the Lord Jesus.  God bless you all!
