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”.

The Harlem Globetrotters teach Pope Francis how to spin a basketball on his fingers

2015-05-06

With this balancing act and the Pope's smile, the Harlem Globetrotters stole the spotlight during the Pope's general audience in St. Peter's Square.

Because the team is 90-years-old, the players gave him a jersey with his name and the number 90. The Globetrotters, who are known throughout the world for skills as entertainers, essentially made him part of the team for a day.

Players taught the Pope a few moves, and he did his best to keep up.

Between the laughter and joking, one of the players thanked Pope Francis the work he does every day and jokingly told him that he could play with the jersey on.

"Thank you."
"Thank you for everything you do."

"It's for you, you can come out front and play.”

They said it is the ninth time that they met a pope. In fact, the team met with Pope John Paul II in 2000.
