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”.

2015-12-23

Thousands of families will participate in local ceremonies with their bishops and others will pass through the Holy Door in the Vatican with Pope Francis.

"Who better than families to explain to everyone that mercy is better for families who instead of closing themselves to live in peace go out and find people!”

The specific proposal is a family pilgrimage to the cathedral or a sanctuary, confession for indulgence, and performing a work of mercy, like visiting an old person, helping someone who is sick, or giving food to someone who has none.

MSGR. VINCENZO PAGLIA
President, Pontifical Council for the Family
"Today, in a world where everything seems to be closed off so that everyone can live safely at home (which is an illusion), this Jubilee tells us to open the doors of the family. The Church must open them to reach out to everyone and let them in. And families should open the doors of their homes and their hearts to welcome people and meet them.”

This Jubilee will be celebrated on Sunday December 27th, because that's the day the Catholic Church celebrates the feast of the Holy Family. It is expected to conclude with the Pope's Angelus, during which he will talk to families that celebrate the Jubilee outside Rome.
