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
November 5, 2014
"I'm happy to announce that, God willing, on June 21st of next year, I will go on a pilgrimage to Turin, to venerate the Holy Shroud and to honor St. John Bosco, in the 200th anniversary since his birth.”

According to tradition, the Shroud rested on the body of Christ after the crucifixion. The last time it was shown was in 2010. Pope Benedict XVI venerated it in the Cathedral of Turin for that occasion.

On Sunday, March 29, the Pope will preside over the Palm Sunday celebration in St. Peter's Square. Last year, more than 100,000 people attended.

After the ceremony, Pope Francis will pray the Angelus at noon.
