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 to FAO: Reducing waste is essential

2015-06-11

Reducing waste, sustainable food production, climate change and land protection. These were some of the themes Pope Francis touched on, as he addressed members of the UN's Food and Agriculture Organization. 

About 450 members gathered in the Vatican's Clementine Hall. There, the Pope reminded them that they have a responsibility that needs to be turned into action. 

POPE FRANCIS
"May you respond concretely to the responsibility you have before the hungry.  May all those who are hoping for agricultural development find a solution to their situation.” 

Access to food, he added, is a human right. So is the protection of the land where farmers produce crops for their livelihood. 

The Pope talked about a domino effect that comes when one promotes a throw away culture: lands are damaged and so is livestock. 

He also highlighted the challenges that emerge when climate change triggers mass migration, crop destruction and extreme weather. 

POPE FRANCIS
"Before the misery of so many of our brothers and sisters, sometimes I think the issue of hunger and agricultural development has turned into one of the many problems that have emerged in this time of crisis.” 

It's estimated that worldwide, roughly 1.2 billion people live in extreme poverty, with limited access to food, water and housing.

Before heading off, the Pope took a group picture, seated right in the middle.
