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: Jesus satisfies our spiritual hunger

2015-08-03

St. Peter's Square was filled with pilgrims who braved the Roman summer heat and came to hear Pope Francis pray the Angelus.

The Pope spoke about how Jesus multiplied bread and fish to feed the crowd. He explained that Christ is the bread of life and that He can satisfy people's spiritual hunger.

POPE FRANCIS
"With these words He wants us to understand that beyond a physical hunger, man has a different kind of hunger. We all have this hunger. It is a more important kind of hunger that cannot be satisfied with ordinary food. It is the hunger for life, the hunger for eternity that only He can satisfy because He is the bread of life.”

Jesus gives this food to people and He also gives it to himself, the Pope said. The Eucharist, he added, is the greatest gift from God.

Further, the Pope explained that human history, because of its ups and downs, has to be viewed through the horizon of eternity. That is, through the final encounter with Christ.

POPE FRANCIS
"And this encounter illuminates every day of our lives. If we think about this encounter, about this great gift, the small gifts in our lives, then the suffering and the worries will be illuminated with the hope of this encounter.”

Pope Francis concluded by thanking Christ for giving us meaning and hope during the difficult moments of our lives.
