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”.

Synod: It must be remembered that sexuality is an expression of love, not a sin

2015-10-16

During the final sessions of the Synod's second week, bishops have put an emphasis on the sexual dimension of marriage.

Participants heard testimony from several couples and they described the importance of two things:

First, is that parents should be the first ones to explain sexuality to their children. And they must show the positive aspects of it.

FR. MANUEL DORANTES
Vatican spokesman
"Current sex education is very negative and disastrous. Many parents don't speak about the beauty of sexuality with their own children, leaving the role to public educators.”

The second point is that the Church has to do a better job of speaking about sexuality. They should emphasize it's an expression of love, not a sin.

And they must also remember the role of the laity and married couples in this area.

FR. FEDERICO LOMBARDI
Vatican spokesman
"Here we must recognize that the experience of couples should guide the Church in this field, to find answers, because they are the people who have most experience.”

Another crucial point was that older married couples have an important role in helping newer couples. Through their example and advice, they can help newlyweds to deeper their relationship and overcome difficulties that come in all marriages.

In that sense, they recalled the role of some Catholics movements in helping married couples who face a crisis.
