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”.

From Argentina to Rome to see Pope Francis

2015-06-14

The general audience with Pope Francis can be an extremely emotional event, especially for people who are visiting the Eternal City for the first time. That was the case for Antonio Martelossi, who was able to see Pope Francis during a tough time in his life.

"I cried a lot...I have a family problem. My sister died yesterday. So it was tremendous. He passed by us and then a cardinal came and blessed us individually. I almost died.”

Antonio was joined by 22 other parishoners from Our Lady of the Mountain, a parish in Cordoba, Argentina. They've come a long way, and still have more traveling to do. After Rome, they'll be visiting the Holy Land.

"The idea is to get as many people as possible to fulfill the dream of their life, to come to Rome, to visit the Pope, and to follow in Christ's footsteps.”

Jose María Puente is a priest who came with the group, and he represented the diocese of Cordoba during the general audience. He personally greeted Pope Francis.

"There was no time to say anything but we were in close contact. We left a number of letters from sick people at the parish, asking for grace and prayers from Pope Francis, which really means from throughout the Church. So I have delivered these small letters, especially from the sick.”

Their next stop is Jerusalem, where they hope they'll be just as overwhelmed with joy and emotion as they were during their first day in the Eternal City.
