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”.

Jubilee Year: The Pope will pray with families of traffic accident victims

2015-10-26

One of the most impactful events of the upcoming Jubilee Year will take place on May 5th. The Pope will celebrate a vigil to "dry the tears” of those who suffer.

Jubilee Organizer 
"It will be a vigil of prayer. There are millions of people whom we interact with daily who carry in their hearts a profound suffering. Perhaps for an injustice they have suffered, or perhaps the hurt of many mothers, many fathers, grandparents and youth who have seen their family members leave the house and never come back. These are traffic accidents or the victims of gratuitous violence.”

In August 2014, several of the Pope's family members passed away after a terrible car accident in Argentina.

August 20, 2014
"I too have a family. We were five siblings and I have 16 nieces and nephews. One of my nephews was involved in the car crash. His wife died and so did their two children: One was 2 years old, the other just a few months. My nephew is in critical condition. Thank you for your condolences and prayers.”

With each Jubilee Year event, the Pope will demonstrate an act of mercy. At this Jubilee, he will show how to "comfort those who suffer.”
