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 to Lithuanian bishops: Defend the family from destabilizing ideologies

2015-02-02

The Pope met with the bishops of Lithuania on their "ad limina” visit to the Vatican.

Many of them had been persecuted during the Soviet occupation.

In a text given to the bishops, the Pope reminded them that dignity and freedom were threatened during the Soviet era.

He asked them to fight against secularism and relativism today.

He also reminded them that they must be especially careful, because Lithuania is now part of the Eurozone and is exposed to ideologies that weaken the family.

Finally, he said that even though Lithuania has experienced significant economic growth, they must not forget those most in need.
Before leaving, many bishops expressed their affection to the Pope and joked with him.

"Thank you Holy Father for your incredible example and inspiration".
"Pray for me."

One bishop made Pope Francis smile after he told him that he had worked in the Curia for 14 years. 

"But we're not all bad."
