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: Sad and nervous priests are bad for their people

2015-11-20

Pope Francis told a group of priests on Friday that when priests are sad or nervous, it's bad for their people and themselves.

He spoke to a conference organized by the Congregation for the Clergy. It was held to mark the 50th anniversary of two Second Vatican Council Degrees: one on the ministry and life of priests, and the other on priestly training.


POPE FRANCIS
"These two decrees are a seed, that the Council has thrown in the life of the Church. During these five decades they have grown. They have become a vigorous plant, of course with a few dry leaves, but with so many flowers and fruits that adorn the Church of today. Retracing the path taken, this Congress has shown these fruits and constituted an appropriate ecclesial reflection on the work that remains to be done in this area so vital to the Church. Still, work remains to be done!”

The Pope added that "the good that priests can do comes primarily from their proximity to, and a tender love for, their people.”
