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”.

The three Brazilian friends who brought a book about Capoeira to the Pope

2015-12-13


Their names are David, Renato and Adriana. They are 20, 32 and 46, but their age difference doesn't prevent them from being friends. Just like how the Atlantic Ocean didn't prevent them from chasing their dream of seeing the Pope.

These three Brazilians have traveled thousands of miles to enjoy five days in the Eternal City.

In addition to Roman archeology, what attracted them the most was the chance to see the Vatican first-hand and experience the general audience with their friends, who received a blessing from Pope Francis.

RENATO CONCEIÇÃO
"For us Brazilians it is very important to always be together, because we know what it means and what it says about us, and also about other countries.”

They feel close to the South American Pope, not just geographically but also personally.

RENATO CONCEIÇÃO
"I like everything about the Pope. He represents Latin America. He is a very good, charismatic person. He has a very big heart and an amazing soul.”

They brought the Pope these books about Capoeria, a form of martial arts. Although they could not deliver the books themselves, they knew they would see him five days later at the Angelus prayer. And they spent the five days before that enjoying Italy's capital.
