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”.

These women are from the Dominican Cenacle Congregation. They came to Rome all the way from Guatemala to meet with their Italian and Albanian sisters. But they also made another unforgettable stop: at Pope Francis' general audience.

Dominican Cenacle Sister
"I'm very happy because I saw the Pope. I wasn't able to greet him up close, but I saw him and now I'm filled with the joy and peace that the Pope transmits.”

Dominican Cenacle Sister
"It has been a very nice experience for us at this audience today. We didn't know it, but when we arrived here they told us that there would be an audience. It was a great joy for us. When the Pope opened the Holy Door, it wasn't only the physical door but also the door to the hearts of all of our brothers and sisters.”

Twelve sisters arrived in Rome with their friends from the Congregation. Their visit coincided with the start of the Jubilee of Mercy. They were also able to walk through the Holy Door together. It was an experience that will stay with them.

Dominican Cenacle Sister
"It has been unforgettable. We have had a lesson in the school of Jesus, learning the way of relationships, prophecy, and testimony. That was our congregation's slogan for this event.”

Among the challenges the Cenacle Sisters face now is starting a university that trains nurses. But they return to their challenges with new inspiration after a visit to the Vatican.
