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”.

The Pope recognizes the miracle needed to canonize the parents of St. Therese of Lisieux

2015-03-18

Pope Francis has recognized the second miracle attributed to the parents of St. Therese of Lisieux, Louis and Marie-Azélie.

They will be proclaimed saints at a ceremony during the Synod of Families in October.

The miracle is the healing of Carmen, a girl from Valencia, Spain. She is now six years old. Carmen was born prematurely with severe complications, and she suffered a brain hemorrhage that affected her lungs and heart. The doctors said they could not help her. Her parents prayed to St. Therese's parents to intercede. Carmen survived and remains healthy today.

The couple was beatified after they also helped cure another newborn, Peter. 

Louis Martin and Marie-Azélie Guérin married in 1858 and had 9 children. Four died in infancy. The five who survived became religious. The beatification took place in Lisieux in October 2008. They will be the first married couple to be canonized together.
