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”.

A “wee movie” to announce big changes in a troubled archdiocese


Scottish Archbishop Leo Cushley has big plans for the Archdiocese of St. Andrews & Edinburgh. And on Palm Sunday, he shared what he will do in the coming days through a short video. Actually, he calls it a "wee video.”

Cushley said that his top priority is to make a realistic assessment of the resources available to "create vibrant Christian communities.” That may include consolidating some parishes.

Archbishop of St. Andrews & Edinburgh
"How do we best respond to that mission entrusted to me by Pope Francis, to bring the joy of the Gospel to our contemporary society?”

The history of Catholicism in St. Andrews & Edinburgh dates back to at least the 10th century.  It is a rich history, but Cushley took over the archdiocese at a difficult time. His predecessor resigned after allegations of sexual misconduct emerged. 

Despite the trouble, Cushley believes that it's possible to grow the Church in Scotland. The Scottish archbishop is going on a tour of 31 venues to share his plans for the future.

He also released a booklet to describe the future of the archdiocese. The archbishop stressed that he will be using new and old methods of communication to discuss his plans.

As for a timescale? Cushley said "it will take the time it will take.”
