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”.

Cardinal Sturla: Pope Francis says he might visit Uruguay in 2016

2015-06-13

On February 14th, Pope Francis officially made him a cardinal. He is Archbishop Daniel Sturla, and he comes from Uruguay, the least Catholic Latin America country. 

Nevertheless, he says that Catholics are very devout in his country. The Church there focuses on two strategies that the Pope has recommended: It meets the people, and it functions as a field hospital.

CARD. DANIEL STURLA 
Archbishop of Montevideo (Uruguay)
"Pope Francis has filled our backpacks with hope, so we can go out with joy, not to announce something that is for a small group but instead to announce that Christ's salvation is, by definition, for everyone.”

That attitude is something that Sturla has felt every time he has had the opportunity to meet with Pope Francis in person.

CARD. DANIEL STURLA 
Archbishop of Montevideo (Uruguay)
"Every time I see the Popethe other day I was with him for a momenthe encourages me. More than the words he tells me, I feel like he is giving me a stream of life that gives me energy for the service I'm doing.”

On July 6th, Pope Francis will start his visit to Latin America. Although the Pope won't be stopping in Uruguay, Cardinal Sturla plans to participate in the trip. And he is hoping that next year will be a turning point for his country.

CARD. DANIEL STURLA 
Archbishop of Montevideo (Uruguay)
"I've already asked the Pope, and he said that he will possibly visit Chile, Argentina, and Uruguay in 2016.”

Only four in ten people in Uruguay are Catholic. In a country where the rest of the population is atheist or agnostic, a papal visit might be exactly what they need.
