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”.

La Voz del Desierto: A Christian rock group with Spanish style

2015-12-18

They met each other in seminary and had something in common: a desire to express their faith in great ways. And they found a way to do it: through rock and roll.

Together with other friends, they formed a group and started playing at youth meetings in their Spanish diocese. Twelve years have gone by and now they've just returned from their first concert in the United States.

JESÚS JAVIER
Singer
"There was a time in a corridor at an event, between acts. A woman approached me and asked for confession. 'Father, can I confess?' At that moment, glancing up, I saw that a huge line had formed. We have peace and joy in our hearts to know we have done the work of God. That is what he asks of us, do it with all your heart, as best as you can to please him and give him glory and evangelize.”

Their song "Determined Determination” was composed on the fifth centenary of the birth of Saint Teresa of Avila, one of the most popular Spanish mystics.

They studied her writings and tried to capture the message in the song. It was a unique way to reach people with the richness of one of the most important saints in the Church.

ALBERTO
Guitarist
"In general, this is how we make songs. We meditate on the texts of the Sacred Scripture, we meditate on the texts of the Magisterium of the Church, of the Holy Fathers that have called us to attention. And then we try to adapt them into a song. In four minutes, we can give you a taste of a teaching that has a corresponding book or writing.”

And in their latest video, published in November, they speak about the Beatitudes.

Their version of rock is like taking in a breath of fresh air. It has a less electronic sound and more strings. Their instrumentals are meant to reflect the serenity and peace of God. They're especially powerful at the start of the Jubilee of Mercy.
