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: Pray that the Roman Curia and I can overcome temptations

2015-02-23

During his weekly Angelus prayer, Pope Francis discussed the Gospel passage about how Jesus was tempted in the desert.

POPE FRANCIS
"The desert is the place where the voice of God and the voice of the tempter can be heard. In the noise, in the confusion, this cannot be done.”

The Church remembers this passage on the first Sunday of Lent. The Pope explained that the Lenten season is about listening, so he recommended reading the Gospel.

He also asked the pilgrims to pray for him and members of the Roman Curia. They began several days of spiritual exercises after the Angelus prayer. Pope Francis will return to Rome on Friday the 27th.

POPE FRANCIS
"I ask that you pray for us, that in the "desert” of the Spiritual Exercises, we may listen to the voice of Jesus, and also correct the many defects that we have. And to also confront the temptations that attack us every day.”


At the end of the Angelus, some of the local homeless people distributed a book called "Keeping Your Heart" to the pilgrims. It was a gift from Pope Francis. He recommended reading it because it contains basic teachings about Christianity that will help with "spiritual growth.”
