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”.

Pope Francis: Let's abandon claims of autonomy and serve others to find happiness

2015-12-30

Every Wednesday, during the general audience, pilgrims invent new strategies to greet the Pope. Just look at what these Colombian's did.

During catechesis, the Pope spoke of Christmas, and said that to understand the meaning of this time of year we can gaze children.

POPE FRANCIS
"Although we know little about Jesus' childhood, we can learn a lot from him by observing  children”.

He recalled that all the children look into our eyes, they need to feel protected and cared for in our arms. 

POPE FRANCIS
"Jesus also wants to be embraced by us,  that we  show Him our love and interest. So that we can abandon our claims of autonomy and welcome a true form of freedom, which is to recognize and serve those in front of us.

The Pope concluded with some advice for Christian's, who should not see the Nativity crib as a decorative object

POPE FRANCIS
"It would be nice that when we get home we approach the Nativity scene and kiss the baby Jesus, and say: Jesus, I want to be humble like you. Humble as God. And ask for that grace”.

Pope Francis prayed for the victims of a strong tornado in the US, the floods in Britain and flooding in Paraguay, where more than 140,000 people have been evacuated.

It was the last  general audience of the year. The Pope took the opportunity to give gratitude for all of the Christmas cards he has received and to send a special blessing to those who are lonely.
