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”.

The miracle that allowed for the canonization of St. Therese of Lisieux's parents

2015-10-16

The last week of the Synod on the Family is marked by a great liturgical event: the canonization of a married couple, the parents of St. Therese of Lisieux. St. Therese is the patron of missionaries and a Doctor of the Church who is one of the most venerated saints today. 

The Pope will preside over the canonization ceremony in St. Peter's Square on October 18th.

The miracle that allowed for their canonization was the inexplicable cure of a Spanish girl named  Carmen in 2008. 

She was born prematurely after a difficult pregnancy. She suffered from many diseases, starting with a very severe brain hemorrhage, and everyone feared the worst.

"There were days of great suffering. Carmen was still in very serious condition. The antibiotics had no effect.”

The Archbishop of Valenica explains the details that followed the fatal diagnosis. Carmen's parents went to the nearest Barefoot Carmelites convent for help...

"The doorbell rang, I went to answer. I heard a voice in pain tell me: 'Sister, I come  to pray for my daughter.'

There they recommended that she ask for the intercession of a couple who had been beatified only four days after the birth of her daughter, the parents of St. Therese. 

Religious parents and friends of Carmen began to pray for her intercession and gradually the girl recovered completely. There was no explanation from a medical point of view. Carmen is now six. 

There have been 18 testimonies for the process of canonization. Eight of them came from medical experts. 

The canonization of St. Therese's parents will take place during the last week of the Synod. It will be a special ceremony for Pope Francis because he is very devoted to St. Therese.
