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”.

To better understand an event as extraordinary as the Jubilee, anything helps. And a new book aims to do exactly that. "Jubilee, Mercy, Francis” is a complete guide to getting ready for walking through the Holy Door.

Author, "Jubilee, Mercy, Francis”
"I believe that it's a useful instrument to follow the Jubilee from many points of view. First, it clarifies from a spiritual point what the Jubilee is and why the Pope has convened it. It also explains why Mercy is a key part of the Pope's pontificate.”

Vatican Secretary of State Pietro Parolin attended the book's introductory event. He explained what exactly the Jubilee of Mercy means.

CARD. PIETRO PAROLIN
Vatican Secretary of State
"We open our hearts to welcome the mercy of God. I believe that this is the invitation, the message we can give to everyone. I hope that no Catholic, no baptized person, and I would even say that no person of goodwill, misses this occasion.”

The book's cover even reflects the theme of mercy. The designer herself explained how it depicts modern dramas like the tragedy of refugees.

NATALIA TSARKOVA
Cover designer, "Jubilee, Mercy, Francis”
"It is the merciful hand of God that is holding the boat, which is green as a symbol of hope. The Church is a symbol of Salvation. Inside the boat there are many people: there are immigrants, needy people, and others who are carrying out acts of mercy like giving things to drink and eat. They are all looking up, where the title of the book is written on the boat's sail.”


In addition to explaining the special relationship that Pope Francis has with Mercy, the book also contains practical information about the calendar of events of this Jubilee and testimonies of Mercy from people like St. John Paul II and Mother Teresa of Calcutta.
