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 to Waldensian Church: Forgive us!

2015-06-22

In his last day in Turin, Pope Francis made history by visiting a Waldensian church. It's the first time a Pope visits an Evangelical church of that particular denomination. In doing so, he received a warm welcome.

Waldensian Church (Turin)
"In this path of individuals and churches, we find brothers and sisters who join us along the journey. Today, with great joy, we find ourselves with you, as a new brother in this journey.” 

The Pope got to know this Church well in Argentina. With about 30,000 faithful worldwide, it's quite small, with most of its presence in Italy and France.  

In his speech the Pope addressed past persecution. He asked for forgiveness on behalf of the Catholic Church. 

POPE FRANCIS
"I ask for forgiveness for the non-Christian attitudes and behaviors, some even inhumane, that we carried out against you. In the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord, forgive us.” 

Unity, added the Pope, is something they should strive for. Reaching unity though, does not mean uniformity, he explained. 

POPE FRANCIS
"Unity, which is the fruit of the Holy Spirit, does not mean uniformity. In fact, even brothers and sisters have a common origin, but they are not identical.”

Before heading out, the Pope called on them to work together to help the disadvantaged. As he usually does in massive and private meetings, the Pope asked them to pray for him.
