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”.

"During the Jubilee for the youth, St. Peter's Square will be transformed into a huge open air confessional. We decided to carry this out to emphasize just how much the Pope is highlighting the importance of confession, of forgiveness and mercy.” 

Millions of pilgrims are expected to walk through the Holy Door in St. Peter's Basilica, as a sign of spiritual renewal. As part of that process, they will walk along Via della Conciliazione to prepare their hearts and minds. 

MSGR. RINO FISICHELLA
Jubilee Organizer
"The pilgrimage will be about 2500 feet from Castel Sant'Angelo to the Holy Door in St. Peter's Basilica. The pilgrimage will be set, so pilgrims will have to let us know that they're coming beforehand, so we can include them in the prayer and meditation. It's a pilgrimage to show one's commitment to renew the faith and to become a witness of mercy.” 

The Jubilee Year of Mercy will run from December 8 to November 20th, 2016. Millions of people are expected to take part in Rome and abroad.
