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”.

An Australian smartphone app provides insights during Lent

2015-02-28

Lent is a time of reflection and penitence, and it can be helpful to draw on different sources of inspiration. 

A new smartphone app from Australia provides some unique and unexpected insight for this Lenten season: It draws from Australian Aborígenes culture.

The "2015 Xt3 Lent Calendar App” is updated daily and includes videos, podcasts, and written reflections. 

The Archdiocese of Sydney created the app. It has been doing this since 2009, and each year has had a different theme.

This year is particularly unique. It focuses on Indigenous Australians. Lots of artwork from  throughout the country is included.

Historical documents, like Pope John Paul II’s speech to Aboriginal Australians, are also part of the application.

The app launched on Ash Wednesday and will continue to generate new content until one week after Easter Sunday.

The app is available smartphones and tablets with iOS or Android. Of course, it's free of charge.
