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.

"Women need to understand how their bodies work and when they do, it's something to be proud of. Some of the women asked to me share just how happy they are to have discovered the beauty of natural family planing.” 

Reflecting on Pope Paul VI's encyclical, Humanae Vitae was also touched on. Especially when it comes to responsible fatherhood. It's something Pope Francis has highlighted throughout his pontificate. 

He explained two things: every married couple must have a dialogue with their pastor about how to realize their paternal responsibility and also that a high birth rate is not synonymous with poverty.

"Some believe that large families, having lots of kids is among the causes of poverty. I think that's a very simplistic viewpoint. I can say, we all can, that the main cause of poverty is an economic system that has pushed aside individuals in exchange for money.” 

Therese Nyirabukeye is one of 31 women who are taking part in the Synod. Another expert is Canadian bio-ethics professor, Moira McQueen. Most of them have a family of their own.
