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”.

We Are One, the song supporting thousands of persecuted Christians in Iraq

2015-05-08

Ooberfuse, a British Pop group, has released a new song written for the thousands displaced by the Islamic State. Their goal is to make the refugees not feel alone or abandoned.

The song is called "We Are One." They want to convey the message that although many of these refugees have lost their homes in Iraq, and some of them have lost their lives, they will never lose the love and hope of God.

The new song has Christian themes. The Ooberfuse member Cherrie Anderson sings, "In our home, in our faith, in our love, we are one.” The lyrics also remind listeners that they're not alone.

The video was shot in a refugee camp in Erbil, which is the capital of Iraqi Kurdistan. It gives shelter to more than 70,000 people. The video includes scenes of daily life for refugees and shows how many shops have sprung up throughout the camp.

"We Are One” is a rallying cry. It was also made in collaboration with the Archbishop of Erbil, Bashar Warda Mati. The song functions as an anthem for those refugees suffering persecution and every day of their lives. It's another example of a creative way that Christians can help others who suffer.
