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”.

“The Letters,” a new film that explores the unknown side of Mother Teresa

2016-01-03

On the day of his 79th birthday, Pope Francis approved the miracle that will make Mother Teresa a saint. Just 18 years after her death, the "mother of the poor,” as Saint John Paul II called her, will be raised to the altars.

Her great life has been brought to the big screen many times. Still, "The Letters” brings a unique version of Mother Teresa to views: It focuses on her loneliness.

"Inside, she was experiencing a terrible emptiness. No one knew about her feeling of isolation.”

The film is largely based on letters between Mother Teresa and her spiritual adviser, the Jesuit priest Celeste Van Exem.

"The letters she wrote document a loneliness she endured over the period of six decades.”

There are nearly 50 years of correspondence that tell how the famous nun lived long periods of spiritual difficulty. The letters had come to light during the process of beatification.

The movie was released a few weeks ago and features a cast of Academy Award Nominees and Golden Globe winners.
