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 meets with Colombian president to discuss peace process

2015-06-15

"It's an honor to see you again Mr. President.” 

"Holy Father, it's an honor. It's great to be here with you again.” 

For the second time, the president of Colombia, Juan Manuel Santos, met with Pope Francis in the Vatican. 

Both leaders spoke for about 20 minutes, discussing the country's reconciliation process. In fact, Pope Francis told the president, he prays for peace in Colombia, adding that he will do what is within his reach, to make that possible. Part of making that happen, he said, is signing a peace agreement with FARC rebels. When that happens, the Pope said, he will move ahead his planned trip to Colombia. 

After their one on one meeting, both leaders exchanged gifts. Colombia's president gave the Pope a dinnerware set. The Pope in turn gave him a medallion of St. Martin, which he commonly gives to world leaders, as well as a copy of Evangelli Gaudium. 

As usual, as they concluded their meeting, the Pope asked the president for his prayers. 


"Pray for me. May God bless you. 

"Thank you”
