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 Mass: Jesus pushes us to look beyond appearances and political correctness

2015-09-21

The city of Holguin is the second city Pope Francis visited in Cuba.  Before making his way to the city's Revolution Square to celebrate Mass, he made his way through the streets in the popemobile, blessing the cheering crowds along the way. 

Reflecting on the spiritual transformation of St. Matthew, the Pope reminded pilgrims that above everything else, God transforms hearts. 

POPE FRANCIS
"The Lord can see beyond appearances, beyond sin, beyond failures and unworthiness. He sees beyond our rank in society. He sees beyond this, to our dignity as sons and daughters.”

For Jesus, said the Pope, recognizes one's essence, not only sins and personal failures. His love, he added, gives rise to service and missionary activity. 

POPE FRANCIS
"Jesus’ love heals our short-sightedness and pushes us to look beyond, not to be satisfied with appearances or with what is politically correct.”

The Pope then called on Christians to help the excluded and abandoned, the sick and prisoners. 

He also thanked Catholic families on the island, who turn their homes into prayer centers, known locally as 'mission houses.' 

POPE FRANCIS
"I would like mention especially the 'mission houses' which, given the shortage of churches and priests, provide for many people a place for prayer, for listening to the word of God, for catechesis and community life.”


Since Our Lady of Charity is the Patroness of the island, he also prayed to Her, asking to look out for everyone, especially those who feel they have no place. 

Then, as usual before leaving the Square, the Pope asked the crowd to pray for him.
