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 makes a surprise visit to an elderly home

2016-01-15

"This is one of the peripheries that you love...”

This is how people reacted when Pope Francis made a surprise visit to their home.

"I'm so happy.”

"And us too, to welcome you.”

The Pope visited this home on the outskirts of Rome, where 33 elderly people live. He was joined by the head organizer of the Jubilee of Mercy, Rino Fisichella.

He spent a few minutes with them in their common room before going to individual rooms to see other residents.

"This has moved me, because it is an enormous honor.”

"How are you, ma'am?”
"Not so good.”

"Cheer up!”

Some children saw the Pope in the parking lot and couldn't believe their eyes. The Pope didn't seem to be in a rush either.

On the way back to the Vatican, the Pope stopped by at a home where six people who are in a vegetative state live alongside their families.

This is the second of the Pope's "gestures of mercy” that he has planned for the Jubilee. According to the Vatican spokesman, he visited these people to "highlight, against the throwaway culture, the importance and value of old people and grandparents, as well as the dignity and value of life in every situation.”
