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”.

2015-08-09

This group of young Portuguese pilgrims just completed a lifelong dream: seeing Pope Francis in person.

"It's nice. It's very good. It's different."

"He is very kind and he is very beautiful.”

"It is very good to see him face to face.”

They came from the Saint Cecilia parish, which is in the city of  Madeira, to take part in Pope Francis' weekly general audience. He spoke about divorced Catholics who remarry, and they found the message particularly powerful.

"The message is that we all are the same and we all belong to the Church and the Church is always opened to every one of us.”

They said that Pope Francis understands the need to go out and be with the people. He has inspired their parish to do more to help those in their city who need assistance.

"To be ourselves but to be sure that we do the best for other people. Faith is all about that. Have faith in God, so that we can be a better person for us and for each other.”

And they also remembered what the Pope has said is one of the best ways to improve the world and help people.
