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 in the Philippines: Check out his seven best quotes

2015-01-19

Pope Francis left seven moving messages in the Philippines, as he showed his closeness to the survivors of typhoon Haiyan, listen to the tragic stories of former street children and asked  Filipino families to stay united.

1.- CORRUPTION

POPE FRANCIS
"As many voices in your nation have pointed out, it is now, more than ever, necessary that political leaders be outstanding for honesty, integrity and commitment to the common good. In this way they will help preserve the rich human and natural resources with which God has blessed this country.”

2.- SAY 'NO' TO SOCIAL INEQUALITY

POPE FRANCIS
"The Church in the Philippines is called to acknowledge and combat the causes of the deeply rooted inequality and injustice which mar the face of Filipino society, plainly contradicting the teaching of Christ.”

3.- TO FAMILIES: DREAM, ALWAYS!

POPE FRANCIS
"When a family loses its ability to dream, children don't grow, love doesn't grow and life loses strength, eventually it shuts off.”

4.- BEWARE OF "IDEOLOGICAL COLONIZATION”

POPE FRANCIS
"Our countries, at a certain point in history reached the point where they said 'no' to political colonization. Now, families also have to be clear, prepared and strong to say 'no' to attempts of ideological colonization of the family.

5.- HOMAGE TO PAUL VI

POPE FRANCIS
"He saw the threat of the family being destroyed by not being open to life or children. Paul VI was brave. He was a good pastor. He alerted his sheep, telling them that the wolves were approaching.”

6.- TO THE SURVIVORS OF TYPHOON HAIYAN

POPE FRANCIS
"Many of you have asked the Lord, looking at Him: Why, Lord? And the Lord answers to each one of you, to your heart, Christ responds with His heart. It's the only thing I can tell you. Let us look to Christ, He is the Lord and He understands us because He underwent all the trials that we go through.” 

7.- THE QUESTION "WITH NO ANSWER”

"Why does God allow this to happen? Children are not to blame. Why are we helped only by a few people?”

POPE FRANCIS
"She Gyzelle, is the only one who has posed a question for which there is no answer. She wasn't even able to express it in words, but rather in tears. I invite each one of you to ask yourselves: 'Have I learned how to weep, how to cry? Have I learned how to weep for somebody who is left aside? Have I learned to weep for someone who has a drug problem?  Have I learned how to weep for someone who has suffered abuse?' Unfortunately, many of those who cry, do so because materialistically, they want more.”
