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 on Canonization of Junipero Serra: Evangelize to those who've lost the joy of living

2015-09-24

Just moments before declaring Junipero Serra a Saint, Pope Francis made his way through the streets of Washington D.C in the popemobile as crowds cheered him on. 

Once the Pope arrived to the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, he was welcomed by even more crowds and plenty of cameras. 

Then, came the official ceremony: The Mass in which Pope Francis declared  Junipero Serra, as a Saint of the Catholic Church. 

Among the thousands of attendees was vice president, Joe Biden. 

Reflecting on the missionary spirit of the Franciscan Friar, the Pope called on all Christians to evangelize to others even amid life's challenges. 

POPE FRANCIS
"In faces of pain, hunger, sickness and sin. In faces of wounds, of thirst, of weariness, doubt and pity. Far from expecting a pretty life, smartly-dressed and neatly groomed, Jesus embraced life as He found it.”

The Pope recognized that with the struggles on every day life, one's heart can become numb. The Pope called on Christians to embrace the joy of the Gospel to deepen one's life. 

POPE FRANCIS
"Jesus said: Go out and tell the good news to everyone. Go out and in my name embrace life as it is, and not as you think it should be. Go out to the highways and byways, go out to tell the good news fearlessly, without prejudice, without superiority, without condescension, to all those who have lost the joy of living.”

Life, he explained becomes stronger when it's offered to others. It becomes weak, when one becomes comfortable and enclosed in one's own ways. Just as the Gospel says, he explained that mistakes do not define one's life. 

POPE FRANCIS
"Go out to proclaim the good news that error, deceitful illusions and falsehoods do not have the last word in a person’s life. Go out with the ointment which soothes wounds and heals hearts.”

The Pope concluded that Junipero Serra reflected a Church that goes out to meet others. A Church that goes to the peripheries and moves forward.
