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 Angelus: Faith and obsession with wealth, don't go hand in hand

2015-10-12

Pope Francis led the Angelus prayer on Sunday, overlooking a packed St. Peter's Square. 

Reflecting on the day's Gospel, the Pope explained the encounter Jesus had with a young rich man. Feeling a spiritual void, Jesus recommends he give all his possessions to the poor. But the young man finds it too difficult to carry out. 

POPE FRANCIS
"This proves that faith and attachment to wealth cannot go hand in hand.” 

Becoming attached to material wealth may be alluring, said the Pope. But eventually it leads to one's downfall. 

POPE FRANCIS
"Money, pleasure, success. They seduce. But eventually they disappoint. They promise life, but they lead to death.” 

For even Jesus said, those who follow me and set aside their material wealth, will have Eternal life. The Pope said, this is based on a basic Christian teaching. He then followed by posing a question to the youth. 

POPE FRANCIS
"It's the joy of giving. Because, Jesus would often say, there's more joy in giving than in receiving.” FLASH. "What do you say to Jesus? Do you prefer to leave this square with the joy that Jesus gives us or the sadness caused by worldliness?”

The Pope then prayed for victims who lost their lives in Turkey over the weekend, during a march for peace in Ankara. The deadly blasts killed nearly 100 people and wounded more than 250. The Pope called on everyone in St. Peter's Square to pray for the victims in silence. 

Towards the end of the Anglus, as usual, the Pope once again, asked everyone for prayers. 

POPE FRANCIS
"Please...please don't forget to pray for me. Have a good lunch and arrivederci!”
