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 Francis visits the sick and elderly at a Roman parish

2015-03-09

The parish that Pope Francis visited on Sunday is in an area of Rome hit hard by unemployment and drugs.

Local people looked forward to the visit and they were obviously excited.

Are you going to school? And you do well? Or so well?

Pope Francis not only celebrated Mass in the parish but also met with children, sick and the elderly. Poignant moments came during the last meeting.

"Holy Father, the Lord has been generous to me. Very, very. "

The sick offered the Pope some gifts, like this rosary made with bread balls. 

Pope Francis greeted all 100 of the patients one by one. Most were elderly but not all. At the end, he said a few words.

POPE FRANCIS
"The Lord never abandons us. When hard times come, a bit of nostalgia, sadness, the tears coming ... Let's do this with our hands. 'Lord, I know You're here.' He never abandons us. Perhaps you say, 'You are here but it is me who is having the ugly moment.'  But He also has lived a hard time on the Cross. Do you remember? He was the first to break through."

In total, the Pope spent nearly four hours at the parish. It is located in Tor Bella Monaca, east of Rome. It was his second parish visit in less than a month.
