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”.

Andrés Beltramo: Pope Francis reforms are a cultural revolution

2015-05-04

Andrés Beltramo is one of the leading Vatican reporters. He has had an up-close view of two papacies while reporting from Rome. Now Beltramo has just published a book that offers an insider's view of Pope Francis' pontificate so far.

ANDRÉS BELTRAMO
Author, "La Reforma en Marcha”
"It's a first-person chronicle that helps with understanding the surprising phenomenon. The mainstream media, which comes and goes,  fails to fully explain it.”

The book is entitled "La Reforma en Marcha,” which translates to "Reform in Motion.” In it, he shows how the most important reform Pope Francis is enacting isn't taking place in the Vatican or Roman Curia. 

ANDRÉS BELTRAMO
Author, "La Reforma en Marcha”
"It is a reform of the soul: a renewal of the Church, almost a cultural revolution, which goes to the fundamental origin, the roots of the most pure and simple Gospel. I think that it is also generating a great movement within the Church.”

Through little known stories and the testimony of people close to the Pope, Beltramo shows how and where Pope Francis' reforms are occurring. He also explains why not everyone agrees with the changes.

ANDRÉS BELTRAMO
Author, "La Reforma en Marcha”
"If we think about the revolution that Jesus caused when He preached at the time, we cannot be surprised that His message continues to create stupor, confusion, and conflict. But at the same time, it stirs passion on a global scale.”

The key to this reform is mercy. According to Beltramo, this embrace is the most powerful symbol of Pope Francis' papacy. Over time, the gesture has become an icon of the pontificate.

The book is currently only available in Spanish.
