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”.

All of Pope's interviews and press conferences, published together in new book

2015-01-03

Just days after being elected Pontiff, Pope Francis invited all the media outlets who had been covering the Conclave, to the Vatican. 

"Thank you very much to you and your colleagues, for all your hard work. Thank  you very much.”

Just two years into his pontificate, he has granted more interviews than any other Pope. 

A book titled 'Interviews and Conversations with Journalists' includes the Pope's first 14 interviews. Perhaps the most popular one was the first one. It was an interview with Fr. Antonio Spadaro from La Civilta Cattolica.

"The Pope is calm, but he's also like a volcano. When Pope Francis speaks, he doesn't follow a linear conversation, instead it goes up and down.”

Since that very interview,  all journalists dream of having a ground-breaking interview or that major soundbite that will leave a mark. 

Veteran Vatican journalist Andrea Tornielli has met the Pope several times. It may be a bit different to see him in person, but his message, he says, always stays the same.

"He has a very special way of addressing the problems of the Church and the world. He's deeply Evangelical: you can see in all his answers.”

Along with the interviews, the book also publishes all press conferences given by Pope Francis during his international trips.
