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 explains what adults can learn from children

2015-03-18

Every Wednesday, hundreds of parents take their children to St. Peter's Square to receive a blessing from the Pope. Many of them have fun, but others not so much.

And it seems that the Pope knows this well.

POPE FRANCIS
"Some, when I try to give them a kiss, smile. Others, they see me in white, and they think I'm a doctor and I'll give them a vaccine. They cry spontaneously. Children are like this."

Pope Francis dedicated his catechesis precisely to children. He focused on what adults can learn from little ones.

POPE FRANCIS
"Children are themselves a treasure for humanity and for the Church, because they constantly remind us of the condition needed to enter the Kingdom of God: not consider ourselves but to instead those in need of help, love, and  forgiveness. And we all need support, love and forgiveness."

Beyond the simplicity of asking for help and allowing themselves to be helped, the Pope said that children also teach us to laugh and mourn, because sometimes we are unable to as we get older.

He also said that despite being "a great gift to humanity," they are also "a majorly excluded group, because sometimes they are not even allowed to be born."

POPE FRANCIS
"Children bring joy, hope and also problems. But that's life. Certainly, they also bring worry, and sometimes problems. But a society is better with these concerns and problems and is sad and grey without children."

The Pope will continue discussing children next week. He will talk about the wounds that can hurt children in their youth.
