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 denounces complicit silence in the persecution of Christians, in the Colosseum

2015-04-04

Once again, Pope Francis presided over the Stations of the Cross at the Colosseum, which is a symbol for the martyrdom of early Christians.

Thousands of pilgrims flocked to the center of Rome to commemorate the Passion of Jesus at 14 stations.

At each station, different people who symbolized pain or difficulty in the world carried the cross. 

In a year specially dedicated to the family, they could not fail. A large family with adopted children carried the cross at the first station.

Sick people were also present. At the fifth station, in which Simon of Cyrene helped Jesus carry the cross, this woman was in charge of holding the cross.

Representatives from countries in crisis were also present. People from Iraq, Syria, Nigeria, Egypt and China, countries where Christians are persecuted, all carried the cross. 

The meditations that accompanied the Stations were written by the Italian Bishop Renato Corti. He compared Christ's suffering with the dramas of today: the persecution of Christians, child abuse, human trafficking, and the death penalty.

At the end of the ceremony, Pope Francis offered a brief meditation. He placed a special emphasis on the plight of persecuted Christians.

POPE FRANCIS
"In You, Divine Love, we still see our persecuted brothers, beheaded and crucified because of their faith while we watch or while we remain silent accomplices.”

Pope Francis also invited Christians to learn from Jesus Christ, who he said never tires of forgiving. He asked them to never get tired of apologizing to God and believing in His limitless mercy.
