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”.

"He focuses on the danger of indifference, apathy and irresponsibility. It's important to delve into this, because it's a phenomenon that's happening in the world right now.” 

The message was presented by Msgr. Giampietro Dal Toso, who serves as the Secretary of the Vatican's Cor Unum Council, which deals with providing humanitarian aid worldwide. 

The message titled, Strengthen your Hearts, deals with a social problem, mostly the indifference of those who are materially wealthy, but poor in the heart. The Pope says the solution is educating through mercy. 

MSGR. GIAMPIETRO DAL TOSO
Secretary, Pontifical Council Cor Unum
"It's about breaking away from individualism and indifference. Breaking away from being closed in on one's self, which the Pope describes as a deadly lock in.”

The Pope also reminded Christians that Lent is a time for renewal and this year, he says, the focus should be on looking towards the suffering of others and lending a helping hand.
