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”.

Take a look at the Pope's weekly schedule


 This week will be relatively calm for Pope Francis. He only has five public events scheduled the entire week. 

The first one will take place just a few hours before 2014 officialy ends. On December 31st at 5pm, Rome time, he will preside over the 'Te Deum' prayer in St. Peter's Basilica. It's part of a Catholic tradition, where the Pope will give thanks to God, for the previous year. 

Afterwards, he will head out to the Nativity Scene that stands outside of St. Peter's Square. There, he will listen to some carols. The very next day, on January 1st, he will celebrate a Mass at 10.00 a.m to mark New Year's and the International Day of Peace. 

He is also planning on praying the Angelus twice this week from his studio window, overlooking St. Peter's Square. Once on New Years Day and then again, on Sunday January 4th.
