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 Francis started Sunday with the canonization of four nuns in St. Peter's Square. Before praying the Regina Coeli, the Pope welcomed the pilgrims who came to see the French, Italian, and Palestinian nuns canonized.

POPE FRANCIS
"May the Lord grant a new missionary impulse to their respective countries. Inspired by their example of mercy, charity, and reconciliation, may the Christians of these lands look to the future with hope, continuing in the journey of solidarity and fraternal coexistence.”

A group of pilgrims from the Czech Republic also received a special greeting from the Pope. They were celebrating an important anniversary.

POPE FRANCIS
"Gathered in the sanctuary of Svatý Kopeek, near Olomouc, they are today remembering the twentieth anniversary of the visit of Saint John Paul II.”

Before concluding, he called on the pilgrims to pray for Burundi. On Friday, the African nation experienced an attempted coup to overthrow their current president.

POPE FRANCIS
"I wish to invite all you to pray for the beloved people of Burundi which is living through a delicate moment: May the Lord help all people to flee the violence and to act responsibly for the good of the nation.”

The Sistine Chapel's choir was responsible for singing the Regina Coeli. When finished, Pope Francis asked, as he often does, that the pilgrims remember to pray for him.
