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: Don't be a slave to your job. Be its master

2015-08-12

The importance of leading a balanced life. This is what Pope Francis talked about as he started off a new series of catechesis,  in his weekly general audience. 

He explained that dedicating time to celebration, work and prayer are all needed to appreciate a healthy family life. 

POPE FRANCIS
"It's a masterpiece of simplicity. It's beautiful because it's not artificial or fake. Rather it has the potential to incorporate all the aspects of true life.”

Balancing these three elements will be one of the central themes of the World Meeting of Families in Philadelphia, which the Pope will attend at the end of September.  

The Pope emphasized that despite a societal obsession with economic profit,  celebration and prayer are needed to reflect on one's life and to reflect on God. 

POPE FRANCIS
"We are made in the image and likeness of God, who is not a slave to work, but the Lord of work!  God asks us to break away from the obsession of economic profit, which attacks our rhythms of life. It denies mankind the time to focus on what's really important.” 

Even God took a day to rest,  the Pope said.  As such, families should follow this example by enjoying quality time together as a unit, and that includes making time for Sunday Mass.  

Enjoying one's personal and professional accomplishments, he added, should be celebrated and not discouraged. 

POPE FRANCIS
"Celebration is a beautiful gift from God. It's a gift He made for the human family to enjoy. Let's not ruin it.”

During the month of August, the weekly general audience is being held indoors—in the Vatican's Paul VI Hall to escape Rome's intense summer heat.
