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 prays at the place where St. Francis of Assisi placed the first nativity scene

2016-01-05

The Pope prayed in the grotto where St. Francis of Assisi established the tradition of the nativity scene in 1223.

It is in the Italian town of Greccio, about 100 kilometers from Rome. Pope Francis arrived in the afternoon, in the car he normally uses. The Pope visited Greccio to pray a few days before the Epiphany. It was such a private event, that TV cameras were not there to captured the moment. The diocese media were the only ones present.

In fact, the only ones that knew of the Pope's visit was the bishop of Rieti and the Franciscan community of the monastery where the grotto is located.

This was a surprise of great magnitude for about 150 young people from the diocese who were participating in a meeting when this took place. The Pope improvised a speech in which he invited them, as did the three Kings, "to follow the signs for Jesus”.
