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”.

2015-03-31

Archbishop Rino Fisichella is still finalizing details for the upcoming Jubilee of Mercy. All that is known is that it will begin on December 8th.

ARCH. RINO FISICHELLA
Organizer, Jubilee of Mercy
"We are preparing the calendar. But Pope Francis must approve it.”

The Jubilee's chief organizer anticipates that it won't be a self-referential event. Rather, the Jubilee will function as an invitation to every Catholic to carry out concrete, merciful gestures.

ARCH. RINO FISICHELLA
Organizer, Jubilee of Mercy
"Christians will have to become instruments of mercy, witnesses of mercy, mercy agents. And not with words but with concrete actions.”

All indications suggest that this jubilee will be filled with strong gestures. For instance, after speaking about the importance of seeking forgiveness from God, the Pope publicly went to confession. 

Pope Francis will proceed with the official indiction on April 11th, the eve of the feast of Divine Mercy. He will deliver the official Bull of Indiction at the Holy Door in St. Peter's Basilica. The text will includes dates and explain what Catholics are expected to do in the Holy Year.
