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 on the Family: Hear from a Protestant taking part

2015-10-17

Among the hundreds of Cardinals, Bishops and prelates taking part in the Synod on the Family, there's also a group of Christians from other denominations. Among them is Rev. Thomas Schirrmacher from Germany. 

REV. THOMAS SCHIRRMACHER
World Evangelical Alliance (Germany) 
"I represent the World Evangelical Alliance, which is 600 million conservative protestants, that-especially when it comes to the family, works very closely with the Pontifical Council, the family and other institutions.” 

Since the Synod is raising many points that affect society as a whole, and not just Catholic families,  leaders from other denominations were invited.

With the rising persecution of Christians, be it direct or indirect, the Pope wants to highlight the importance of unity. 

The Rev. Schirrmacher says the Pope's message resonate with families beyond borders and denominations, especially since many of the family challenges are quite similar.   

REV. THOMAS SCHIRRMACHER
World Evangelical Alliance (Germany) 
"When the Pope says let’s say more please and thank you more and people are astonished something went wrong. That is the every day of life of a family living together and being able to cope with problems, mistakes and shortcomings every day.”

Back in 2014, when the first phase of the Synod on the Family took place, Christians from different denominations were also invited to weigh in.
