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: Don't be an absent father. Your family is counting on you

2015-01-28

The Pope's weekly catechesis was all about the family, so it was quite fitting that he played a bit with this baby, before starting the audience. He talked about the family unit and the need to raise kids right. 

POPE FRANCIS
"In the past, kids were raised under an authoritative rule. In some cases this was very overwhelming. But now, what we see in households is the other extreme.” 

He also talked about another serious problem, which is absent fathers. From fathers who are simply not in the picture, to those who spend all their time and energy on work. 

POPE FRANCIS
"So young people end up without a path, virtual orphans without someone to trust in. They become orphans of ideals that awaken the heart. Instead, they turn to false idols that steal their hearts.” 

There are strong families out there, but these challenges, he explained, cannot be ignored. He also gave some insight into what he will focus on next week. 

POPE FRANCIS
"Some of you may say, 'But Father, you've been too harsh and negative. You only focused on absent fathers and the consequences this brings.' Yes it's true. I want to underline this point today, because next Wednesday during my catechesis, I will focus on the beauty of fatherhood. That's why I wanted to start off with this dark chapter, so I can then focus on the light. May God help us understand these situations. Thank you.” 

This colorful group, put the finishing touches on the audience. The thousands of people in the audience seemed to enjoy it and so did the Pope.
