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 hug between Pope Francis and an indigenous Mexican

2015-12-17

Pope Francis will travel to Mexico in February. But some Mexicans have already decided to visit him at the Vatican first.

POPE FRANCIS
"I see that there are many Mexicans here!”

That's the case with these humble artisans, Simona and Catalina. They come from Chiapas, one of the regions the Pope will visit next year.

SIMONA GÓMEZ LÓPEZ
"Well, I'm very emotional and happy. I never thought I would meet the Pope.”

CATALINA SÁNCHEZ PÉREZ
"It was a blessing for me, that moment which I could greet him in. We gave him a handmade, artisanal tablecloth.”

The tablecloth was designed with the colors of the Pope's football team, San Lorenzo. Simona, for her part, gave him a clay pigeon that symbolized peace.

The two women didn't come to the Eternal City just to see Pope Francis. They were also joined by the governor of Chiapas for the opening of a new exhibit on Mexican artisans at the Vatican Museums.

The lively colors in these images and paintings got the attention of visitors and tourists. They had no idea that their bags and bracelets would be displayed alongside some of the greatest art in history.
