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”.

What is the Pope's Christmas card like?

2014-12-25

This is the Pope's Christmas card. The image was designed by Belgian artist Victor Delhez, famous for his engravings. This 20th-century artist lived in Argentina most part of his life.

It is an unusual Nativity Scene. The ox and the mule appear in front of the Holy Family and not behind.

St. Joseph welcomes the shepherds who come to the Manger, while Our Lady pays all her attention to Baby Jesus. Pope Francis calls Christmas "the feast of poverty,” and anyone that looks at this image can see why. The shepherds, as well St. Joseph and Our Lady, are depicted without any richness.

On the back of the card appears the Pope's papal shield, along with his signature and a quote from the Gospel of Luke: "My eyes have seen your salvation.”
