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”.

Cory Matthews: a different kind of hip hop artist

2015-05-01

Hip hop is not a genre typically associated with Christianity. Its biggest stars often rap about gangs, drugs, and money. But one young hip hop artist is trying to change the genre.

Cory Matthews Larmour, who goes by Cory Matthews, is a rapper from New York state. He hopes his style will change hip hop—and spread the Gospel.

After seeing his father DJ and his cousin rap, Cory tried writing rhymes himself. He has been doing it for years. The rapper's lyrics are aspirational and often reference God. 

Larmour became religious after a friend was stabbed and killed. A Catholic, he now attends Mass and frequently performs for youth gatherings.

His debut album was called "Unafraid.” His next album, "Boy Meets World,” will be released this summer. 

Like many popular artists, he uses social media to help grow his fan-base and spread his ideas. Tens of thousands of fans follow him on Instagram and Facebook.

Matthews does not identify as a Christian rapper. Rather, his music simply reflects the deep influence that Catholicism has had on his life.
