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”.

It's been nearly a month since Pope Francis left the United States, but the country hasn't forgotten him. And apparently the U.S. is still on his mind too.

 "Our Holy Father made a great impact. Even at this early stage, I've just seen some of the results of the way people are looking at life and at the importance of their faith. And the statistics are showing that people are being affected by this trip.”

Archbishop Joseph Kurtz of Louisville, Kentucky said that while the trip lasted only five days, "it felt like five weeks” because of the Pope's packed schedule.

Kurtz added that the Pope's visit affected him personally. His example reminded the archbishop of why he became a priest to begin with: to serve in a humble way.

"I also believe our Holy Father, himself, has been deeply affected. And this pleases us immensely. He tells us that he was welcomed, that the people of the United States are very warm and very faithful. And I could see by his smile that he enjoyed himself.”

Pope Francis visited Washington, New York, and Philadelphia. Kurtz noted that the Pope managed to meet with "the most influential, and the forgotten, and everybody in between, and within a half an hour this occurs.”
