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 and Governor-General of Antigua and Barbuda discuss migration and climate change

2015-11-23

When Pope Francis meets with world leaders, he always represents the smallest nation. But this time, the other state wasn't much bigger.

On Monday at the Vatican, the Pope held "cordial” talks with the Governor-General of Antigua and Barbuda, Sir Rodney Williams. 

The two-island nation has a population of under 100,000. And there are about 9,000 Catholics living there.

The two smiled as they sat down for a 20-minute private meeting. They discussed how the Catholic Church contributes to life on the islands, as well as migration and climate change.

After introducing several members of his family, the two exchanged gifts. The governor-general gave the Pope a colorful painting of school children, and he beamed as he studied it.

Pope Francis gave the leader copies of "Evangelii Gaudium” and "Laudato Si,” along with a medallion that represents peace.

As his guests departed, Pope Francis made a familiar request to the governor-general's wife, though in an unfamiliar language.

"Pray for me.”
"I'm going to.”

And he also reminded the leader to do the same thing.

"Pray for me. And don't forget.”

The visit is just the latest move to strengthen ties between the states. Antigua and Barbuda also recently appointed an Ambassador to the Holy See.
