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”.

Francis on Ukraine Conflict: It is a scandal, a war between Christians

2015-02-04

At the end of his weekly general audience, Pope Francis once more condemned the violence in Ukraine. He warned that the conflict has worsened and renewed his call for peace.

POPE FRANCIS
"Brothers and sisters, when I hear the words 'victory' or 'defeat' I feel great pain, a great sadness in my heart. These are not the right words. The only right word is peace.”

The Pope went further, describing the war as fratricide and scandalous because it pits Christians against Christians.

POPE FRANCIS
"But think: this is a war between Christians. They both have the same baptism, yet they are fighting amongst themselves. Think about this scandal and pray, because prayer is our protest to God in time of war."

Fighting in eastern Ukraine has intensified recently. On February 2nd the leader of the pro-Russian rebels in Donetsk announced a general mobilization of the army, which would increase the number of soldiers to 100,000.
