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”.

2015-02-16

Pope Francis reflected on the execution of 21 Coptic Christians in Libya by Islamic State terrorists.

POPE FRANCIS
"Their only words were: "Jesus, help me!" They were killed simply for the fact that they were Christians.”

Pope Francis spoke about the victims during a meeting with a delegation from the Reformed Church of Scotland.

POPE FRANCIS
"In our globalized and often confused world, a common Christian witness is a necessary requisite for the effectiveness of our efforts to evangelize.”

The Pope told the group he was deeply saddened by the news. The Reformed Church of Scotland's leader, Rev. John Chalmers, was present.

POPE FRANCIS
"The blood of our Christian brothers and sisters is a testimony which cries out to be heard. It makes no difference whether they be Catholics, Orthodox, Copts or Protestants. They are Christians! Their blood is one and the same.  I ask that we encourage each another to go forward with this ecumenism which is giving us strength, the ecumenism of blood. The martyrs belong to all Christians.”

During the ecumenical meeting, Pope Francis asked that all Christians unite so that the light of Christ can reach wherever there is only darkness.
