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”.

Pastor of Our Lady of Valme (Rome)
"Given the success and popularity of our Nativity Scenes in Christmas, we said, 'Why not do the same with the Passion?'”

It includes all the key moments of Jesus' Passion and it even has a few special effects: From an earthquake in the city of Jerusalem to the removal of a stone that covers His tomb. 

D. ALFREDO FERNANDEZ
Pastor of Our Lady of Valme (Rome)
"It's divided into different areas. The first one is the Garden of Olive Trees. Then, the area of 
Sanhedrin, where Jesus is kept prisoner. After that we have the residence of the Roman emperor.  Then we have the site of the Passion and from there we move onto the Resurrection grotto.” 

The parish priest developed the idea and asked his parishioners to start taking action. 

It's not very common for parishes to have these type of visual representations, but this parish wanted to make a point to keep the tradition alive.
