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”.

Papal Mass: Everyone has dignity, no matter how little they possess or contribute

2015-07-09

It was standing room only, as Pope Francis celebrated Mass in Bolivia. It was a colorful setting with plenty of lively music to go along with it. 

In his homily, the Pope said there's an underlying message in the Gospel reading, where Jesus multiplies fish and loaves of bread. He said Christians should stay away from the mentality where everything has a price or is negotiable. 

POPE FRANCIS
"This way of thinking has room only for a select few, while it discards all those who are unproductive, unsuitable or unworthy, since clearly those people don’t 'add up.' But Jesus once more turns to us and says: "They don’t need to go away; you yourselves, give them something to eat.”

He then explained that in this miracle, Jesus highlights three main points: taking, blessing and giving. The most powerful gift of all, he added is the Eucharist. 


POPE FRANCIS 
"Unbelievably, there were even leftovers: enough to fill seven baskets. A memory which is taken, blessed and given always satisfies people’s hunger.”

The wealth of a nation is measured by the lives of its people. From the elderly to the young. Everyone, no matter how small, he said, has dignity.

POPE FRANCIS
"Jesus never detracts from the dignity of anyone, no matter how little they possess or seem capable of contributing.”

The Papal Mass also marked the opening of the  5th Eucharistic National Congress in Bolivia.
