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”.

Pope Francis on Oscar Romero: Even bishops and priests defamed him after his death

2015-10-30

Some 500 Salvadorans have visited Pope Francis today to thank him for beatifying the martyred Archbishop Oscar Romero, one of the most important figures in Latin American Catholicism.

The first person to greet him was this little boy, who skipped the line.

MSGR. JOSÉ LUIS ESCOBAR
President, Episcopal Conference of El Salvador 
"We are a representative commission of the country of El Salvador, composed of the majority of the bishops from the episcopal conference and the senior postulator for the Cause of Monsignor Romero.”

The Pope lamented that there are still martyrs today in different parts of the world. He recalled that Romero remained martyred after his murder because "he was defamed, slandered and even soiled by his brothers in the priesthood and in the episcopate.”

POPE FRANCIS
"Good Shepherd, filled with love of God and close to his brothers, living the dynamism of the Beatitudes, gave his life violently, while celebrating the Eucharist.”

Pope Francis says that the impact of Romero "is still perceived today” and recalled another Salvadoran priest killed in the same period who is in the process of beatification, Jesuit Rutilio Grande.

He further requested that El Salvador "become a country where everyone feels redeemed and brotherly, without difference.” It's what Monsignor Romero tried to do.
