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”.

Patriarch of Antioch of the Syrians
"We are very alarmed about the situation in Christian communities and above all for the catastrophic testing of torn and divided families that are doing everything possible to leave the hell of Iraq and Syria.”

The Syrian religious leader said that his people feel forgotten. While the Islamic State releases videos depicting their acts of horror, the West has yet to take action. He accused them of "economic opportunism.”


IGNACIO JOSÉ III YOUNAN
Patriarch of Antioch of the Syrians
"We have hundreds of people who have been kidnapped by Islamic terrorists. It is a catastrophic phenomenon that has gone on for a long time.”


The patriarch made these statements before the press on the fourth day of the Synod. He said that pastors of the Church in the Middle East are doing everything possible to create inspiration in their communities. But he admitted that they often feel powerless to confront the situation.
