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 in deep prayer before the tomb of Pope Paul VI

2015-11-03

November 2nd is the day that the Church dedicates to the deceased. It's also the day when the Pope visits the Vatican Grottoes. Many popes are interred there, such as John XXIII and Paul VI. Before the tomb of the latter Pope, Pope Francis made a notable stop to pray for a few moments.

Pope Paul VI has had one of the biggest influences on Pope Francis, thanks to documents like Evangelii Nuntiandi. He signed that apostolic exhortation about evangelization in December of 1975.

The Pope's visit to the tomb was simple and private. A few people attended the prayer he delivered for the dead.

The Vatican Grottoes are located between the Renaissance basilica and above Emperor Constantine’s 4th century basilica.
