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”.

A couple with 10 children organize the meeting of Pope Francis with large families

2014-12-27

Italian marriage Giuseppe and Raffaella Butturini  organized this unique event and estimate that 7,000 people will attend. The Italian Large Family Association will celebrate close to Pope Francis its 10th anniversary. They asked him to celebrate their anniversary at the Vatican and he accepted the invitation right away.

"This association was born when two fathers, who were shopping, met at a supermarket back in August 2004. They were looking at the same fish and thinking the same thing: 'Oh, it would be great to have this for lunch, if we could only afford it...'. It was too expensive for someone who had to provide for four or six children.”

The main goal of celebrating this anniversary is clear: they want to send society the message that a large family is the best place where children can grow. They have 10 children.

"When my husband was sick, my children supported me. We also went through economic difficulties eventually, and our house was flooded in 2010.”

Large families associations from other countries will also attend the gathering. It will begin on December 28 at 11.30 AM, marking the Feast of the Holy Family. 

The situation of the family today is one of the topics that most concerns Pope Francis. On October 2015 bishops from all over the world will gather at the Vatican for the second phase of the Synod on the Family.
