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's Angleus: What role does Jesus play in our lives?

2015-08-24

During the Sunday Angelus, Pope Francis explained that following Jesus, is about being loyal to a person, and not an idea. 

POPE FRANCIS
"This person is Jesus. All the material goods we have in the world, don't satisfy our eternal hunger. We need Jesus! To be with Him, to eat at His table and hear His words of eternal life.” 

With thousands of pilgrims in St. Peter's Square, Pope Francis highlighted that following Jesus doesn't mean being chained, but rather, it's the opposite. For, Jesus, said the Pope, gives liberty. 

POPE FRANCIS
"Believing in Jesus, means making Him the focal point of our lives. Christ is not an accessory: He is the 'Living Bread.' He gives us irreplaceable nourishment. To be with Him, in a deep relationship of faith and love, doesn't mean being chained to Him, but rather completely free, always taking part in the journey.” 

To reflect on the role Jesus plays  in the lives of Christians, the Pope asked very direct question.  

POPE FRANCIS
"Now I kindly ask you, let us take a moment of silence, and each one of us, in silence, in his or her heart, ask yourself this question: "Who is Jesus for me?” In silence, everyone answer in his or her heart. "Who is Jesus for me?”

The Pope then prayed for Ukraine and the war is still suffering. A war that so far has claimed the lives of at least 7,000 people. He then called on governments to respect the peace accords that were agreed on. 

POPE FRANCIS
"I renew my appeal, so that the commitments undertaken to achieve peace might be respected; and that, with the help of organizations and people of good will, there might be a response to the humanitarian emergency in the country.”

As usual, the Pope called on all Christians to carry a pocket sized Gospel, to read as they go about their day. He explained that the more one gets to know Jesus, the more one wants to be with Him.
