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 asks Bishops of Benin to promote dialogue with Islam

2015-04-27

The Bishops of Benin met with Pope Francis as part of their ad limina visit. 

'Here is Benin, the great!' 

The Pope gave them all a copy of his speech, where he calls on bishops to promote inter-religious dialogue, especially with Islam.  He then went on to describe the country as an example of religious coexistence. 

Supporting families should be priority for them, said the Pope. He also highlighted the need for them to promote education. When it comes to the role of the Church, its charitable works, he explained, reflect the mercy of Jesus, making them much more than just social assistance. 

He gave a gift to every bishop and one of them responded in Spanish

'Thank you.' 

Benin has a population of 7.6 million people. Roughly 28 percent is Catholic and 24 percent is Muslim.
