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 talks Middle East and environment with Canadian prime minister

2015-06-11

"Your Holiness. It's wonderful to meet you.”

Pope Francis met with the Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper at the Vatican.

Their introduction was simple and friendly, although there was some confusion once they moved to begin their meeting.

They then held a private meeting. The two discussed religious freedom, the environment, terrorism, and the relationship between Canada and the Church. They also talked specifically about issues in Europe and the Middle East. 

The Canadian leader introduced his wife and members of his entourage. Again, there was some minor confusion about protocol.

Once the encounter ended, Harper said farewell to the Pope, and he responded in English.

"Thank you. It's been great.”
"Thank you.”
"Nice to meet you. Very nice to meet you. Thank you.”

It was the first time Harper met Pope Francis. However, he had an encounter with Pope Benedict XVI in 2009.
